Bays & Estuaries Jigsaw

Estuaries are formed where rivers meet the sea and where fresh water and sea water mix as the incoming tide and the river flows meet and mingle. Tidal flows in the Barwon Estuary extend all the way into the wetlands of Lake Connewarre and make this wetland complex one of Victoria’s most important conservation areas for the many birds it attracts.
