The Belmont Lagood spit is surrounded by water and bird life. This is a fabulous place to enjoy in the early morning or evening, when bird life is most active. Birds you are likely to see include the Black Swan, Royal Spoonbill, Superb Blue Wren, Variegated Wren, Blackfaced Cuckoo Shrike, Eastern Whip Bird, Welcome Swallow and the international migatory waders, such as the Bar-Tailed Godwit. At the end of the spit, there are two derelict buildings and a burnt-out car. The spit is a good place to see the main biotic areas, including reed swamp, swamp heath, swamp forest, sedge land and open water.
