The Great Morass is a large nature reserve (16 km/10 mi long, 3 km/1.8 mi wide) that runs parallel to Long Bay and Bloody Bay. It lies on the coastal flood plain of the Black River and attracts many rare and endangered water birds.
A visit to Royal Palm Reserve is the best way to get a sense of this beautiful but marshy area. A series of wooden boardwalks takes you on a 1.5 km (1 mi) loop through several distinct forest types where you can expect to see a great variety of flora, birds and butterflies.
A lookout tower on the route has great views across the mangrove swamps and the vastness of the Great Morass.
