Gleeson Wetlands, Clare

Gleeson Wetlands was established in 2012 and Clare Lions Club took part responsibility for maintenance in mid 2014.

The wetlands is becoming one of the more important attractions of the Clare Valley. It is popular among walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and those interested in Australian native plants. Dogs are welcome under control.

The administrator of this page, David Clarke, is a Lions member. I would like to thank Council for their continuing financial support for services such as weed control and providing the materials that the Lions need for maintenance of the wetlands.

  • Nice beautiful area where you can easily stroll at your own pace. Home to many native animals and birds.
  • Great walk from the centre of Clare. The vegetation has grown heaps since my last visit a few years ago. It's all kept very well.
