COST: It is free to visit the area, view and walk around the Sanctuary from outside.
The Sanctuary is fenced to prevent disturbing the birds and access is not generally permitted. There are five raised viewing berms on the perimeter to see over the fence. There are no hides.
Walkers / Families: The perimeter is 2.5km around with a grassed verge which is safe for walking. Otherwise, walk on the right of the road, facing oncoming traffic. There are numerous benches and shaded areas suitable for picnics on the grass.
Dogs: Keep dogs on leashes and pick up after them to keep Korsman pleasant for all. There are six community dog poo bag dispensers around the perimeter.
Cyclists: Ride on the left. The safest direction is anti-clockwise, as this avoids intersections.
Photographers: The Conservancy is opened occasionally for photographers days. Numbers are limited and members have priority. Contact us if you wish to be notified of future events.
To photograph over the fence, bring a stepladder and a beanbag to rest your lens.
The best way to see inside: join a work party for litter pick-up or alien vegetation removal!
Overseas Visitors: Contact us for more information.
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 in nearby Western Extension. There are no toilet facilities in the suburb.
