COST: Free. The outside of the Sanctuary is an open public area.
OPENING HOURS: None. The Sanctuary is fenced and visitors walk around the outside in the public area. The public are not admitted into the fenced-off Sanctuary area.
BIRD VIEWING: There are five raised viewing berms on the perimeter. Birds are clearly visible from the fence. There is one bird hide accessible to members.
The Sanctuary is fenced to prevent disturbing the birds and trampling the vegetation, which is why access is not generally permitted.
Walkers / Families: The perimeter is 2.5km around with a pathway for 1.4km and a grass verge for the remainder. There are numerous benches and shaded areas suitable for picnics on the grass.
Accessibility: A Council-built pathway extends along 1.6km of perimeter. The berms at Pan Rd, Shannon Rd and no 24 have wheelchair ramps. A bypass pathway behind the berm opposite 48 The Drive is flat for wheelchairs where the Council path is too steeply cambered.
Dogs: Keep dogs on leashes and pick up after them to keep Korsman pleasant for all. There are ten community dog poo bag dispensers around the perimeter.
Cyclists: Ride on the left hand side if the road, in accordance with the rules of the road. The safest direction is anti-clockwise, as this avoids intersections. Do not ride on the pedestrian walkway.
The area: The Sanctuary is within a 'considered safe' boomed residential suburb of Lakefield / Westdene. There are six entrance gates into the suburb. There are cafes and restaurants outside the suburb. There are no toilet facilities in the suburb.
