About Muttonbird Island

 

Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve is the most significant muttonbird site in NSW & provides great views of the coast and a glimpse at close quarters of the life cycle of one of Australia's most interesting migratory birds. Thousands of wedge-tailed shearwaters (or muttonbirds) travel here each year to breed.
