The name conjures up images of a dark and foreboding wetland, but there is no mystery attached to the Black Swamp at all. It is actually a four-hectare wetland forest of scraggly melaleucas, grasses and ferns. The Black Swamp is considered to be important ecologically as it is home to a variety of birds and animals, including the sacred ibis, the majestic spoonbill crane, egrets, ducks, frogs and turtles. At dusk the swamp comes alive with the sound of beating wings as the resident colony of black headed flying foxes depart for their nocturnal feeding.
