Mount Compass Wetland is located at the far edge of the large gravel parking lot behind the Mount Compass shops. There are accessible toilets, a picnic table and a attractive boardwalk.
The boardwalk meanders along through very wet areas, across natural drainage lines and over seasonally dry areas. The more recent 100 metre extension of the Boardwalk to Arthur Road now provides easy access. This small but important wetland contains many rare, vulnerable and endangered plants.

Over 100 plants have been identified in the swamp. Unusual birds frequent the area: the shy, endangered Southern Emu Wren is a permanent inhabitant. Rare and delicate orchids and ferns have also been found scattered throughout this fascinating wetland. The Boardwalk provides easy, damage-free access to this interesting and important swamp at Mount Compass.
