A rare example of this area before it was cleared for agriculture.

The campground suitable for caravans or tents, however there is not a lot of grass cover. It is quite large, level and with some scattered shade here and there.

The lake and wetlands periodically dry out, so depending on when you are hear, will depend on the wildlife you see. The area is one of the most biodiverse in the whetbelt region. Birds you may spot here include White Faced Herons, Grey Teals and Black Winged Stilts

The picnic area / campground is named after the Swamp She-oaks that grow here, which are a food source for many animals (as well as providing shelter). They were even used as a back up feedstock for cattle/sheep in dry periods.

There is an excellent write up of the environmental significance of the area here
