Foxes Lair Highlights from December to March
In the summer months the best times to visit are in the early morning and evening when it is cooler and the sun is highlighting fresh new bark on the trees, particularly copper coloured brown mallet on the Claypit Walk. Rainbow bee eaters and Carnabys cockatoo are visiting and you always have a chance of spotting mother kangaroo and her joey.
Bobtail skinks and monitor lizards (also called racehorse goannas) come out as the day warms up. Snakes are rarely seen and are not a threat unless you go into the bush looking for them. Be sure to keep dogs on a leash to stop them chasing the wildlife and disturbing snakes.
It is a nice spot to have breakfast or take dinner and watch the sun go down. Kids particularly like the Claypit and the Arboretum picnic area (climbing rock, bush cubby and tree swing)
Check out picnic spots at Railway Dam and particularly Yornaning Dam (good spot for kids)
