Additionally, the Maroochy River Conservation Park serves as a habitat for many animals, including the threatened wallum froglet and false water rat. The saltmarsh areas serve as a roosting and feeding site for many migratory waders and water birds. The mangroves are also home to many fish. Other native animals that call the park home include swamp wallaby, eastern ray kangaroo, brush-tailed possum, squirrel gliders, yellow-footed antechinus, and many frogs. For reptiles, there are common sea snakes, the eastern brown snake, dark flecked garden sun skink, and more.
It’s good to note that the park’s land has an important cultural heritage for the local Aboriginal people, who consider the Old Woman island an important aspect of their culture. The island’s origin story is part of many creation stories, including one linked to the formation of the Glass House Mountains.
The Maroochy River Conservation Park is a beautiful and environmentally culturally significant destination to explore.
