An app boasting interactive maps, information about different tracks and trails, species guides for local wildlife and updates on activities at the lake. That’s what in store for people who download the new Tuggerah Lakes Estuary ‘Explore’ app from the Google Play and iTunes stores.
Mayor Jane Smith said the app is another way Council is helping the community better understand the complexity and uniqueness of the Tuggerah Lakes estuary.
“Whether it’s birdwatching, fishing or walking and bike riding on the shared pathways, Tuggerah Lakes Estuary ‘Explore’ can also help you to identify the many bird and fish species which occupy the lakes and surroundings, and what time of year you are likely to find them,” Mayor Smith said.
The project responsible for the production of the app received grant funding from the Australian Government under the Improving Your Local Parks and Environment program.
“It complements our existing multi-touch books that take an in depth look into Tuggerah Lakes, how they work and the various projects that have been undertaken by community groups and us, including Waterwatch and Landcare, while encouraging people to better care for the estuary” Mayor Smith said.
