The Parrakie Wetlands are located within the West Avenue Range Watercourse and contain over 720 hectares of naturally occurring wetlands and intact remnant native vegetation. The area has not been grazed in over 30 years and has never been cleared.

In fact The West Avenue watercourse, of which the Parrakie wetland is a part, has been described by the minister's own department as 'arguably the largest and most pristine area of watercourse in the upper South East'
