Try your luck at reeling in a flathead, bream, whiting, tailor or mangrove jack in the passage or explore its sheltered waters by canoe or kayak. If you're lucky you may spot a dugong grazing on seagrass beds.

Stroll along the water's edge at low tide to see migratory shorebirds refueling here during summer before their April departure. You'll also see birds of prey, such as ospreys, sea eagles, and brahminy and whistling kites all year round.
