Peter Faust Dam is a beautiful backdrop for many waterbird species.
Koa provides a stable viewing platform as well as a comfortable photography platform. The boat has several water and weatherproof storage hatches and gives you access to part of the dam, and its birds, that is just not possible from the ramp and dam parklands.
We live very close to the dam (<5 mins) and so can tailor make a tour at late notice. Get in touch to discuss options!
Kelly (Luke’s wife) is a self confessed ‘bird nerd’ and spends lots of time in and around the dam with her camera. To right is her 2022 bird list. Updated regularly and off to a great start for the new year!
