During times of rain and flood, the area becomes a wonderland as the claypans
fill with water. The water takes on a soft chocolate brown colour, as a result
of the red clay and silt.
Set against the backdrop of the ranges, and due to the close proximity to
town, this area is popular with the locals, providing a great spot from where to
enjoy the natural landscape, a great place to take photos, walking your dogs,
and even horse riding. Due to its fragile nature visitors are asked to treat the
area with care and respect, ensuring that they also take all rubbish with them
when they leave.
