Schroder Park Wetland

If you have an interest in the environment, sustainability or local flora and fauna, our Schroder Park Wetland is a great place to spend a few hours.

Storm water from the Birkenhead Plant is captured and diverted into the wetland where it is purified through a variety of natural processes, including sedimentation and nutrient uptake by local reed species.


By planting the wetland with indigenous plant species an ideal habitat has been created for native wildlife, which is flourishing in the area - a testament to the health of the wetland.

There are a variety of birds, reptiles, insects and aquatic life, including many local frog species.

The local community and schools have played a significant role in the delvelopment of the wetland and have maintained their involvement through a maintenance and water quality testing program.

This wetland is a great example of industry working in harmony with and enhancing the natural environment.
