Sign for Lagoon Creek and the Australian Workers Heritage Centre

On the outskirts of Barcaldine, Lagoon Creek is a popular walking and bird watching spot with two kilometres of walking tracks along the lagoon and through native vegetation.

Lagoon Creek has an important part of the history of Barcaldine, the location of the shearers’ strike camp just out of town. This location isn’t where the camp is though.

Wildlife is generally more active at Lagoon Creek in the early mornings and evenings, making it the better times to visit to see birds and other animals coming to the lagoon. Native birds that can be seen here including water birds, finches, brolgas and fairy wrens. A list can be found at the Barcaldine Visitors Information Centre.

Dogs can be taken with you on the paths for a walk too but they must be on a leash. Kangaroos and emus and other wildlife use Lagoon Creek as a watering point, which could become something of interest to chase for inquisitive pets.

To get there:
