The Pumicestone Passage is a wonderful area for birds and there are several vantage points from the numerous beaches. Raptors are common and include spectacular White-bellied Sea-Eagles, Ospreys and Brahminy Kites. Waders, including the globally-threatened Eastern Curlew, are plentiful on the mudflats, especially in summer, and you might even spot a majestic Black-necked Stork. Amongst the many migrant waders that gather at the award-winning Kakadu Beach high-tide wader roost at Banksia Beach can be the scarce Sooty Oystercatcher and, if you are really lucky, Beach Stone-curlew. In winter Double-banded Plovers, visitors from New Zealand, occur in small numbers at this man-made sanctuary
