Little Llangothlin Nature Reserve
Little Llangothlin Nature Reserve is a hidden gem, ideal for day trippers and those looking to get away from it all. It’s only a short drive from Armidale and Glen Innes, and offers superb birdwatching, bushwalking and picturesque places to picnic.
The reserve protects Ramsar-listed Little Llangothlin Lagoon and the surrounding wetlands, one of the few remaining high altitude freshwater lagoons on the New England Tableland. It provides refuge for over 100 species of birds and an abundance of animals, so no wonder it’s a favourite for birdwatching and wildlife enthusiasts.
Enjoy birdwatching around Little Llangothlin picnic area and wander down to the nearby viewing platform. Or go bushwalking along the easy Lagoon Circuit walking track and take advantage of the many great vantage points to admire this spectacular natural setting along the way.
