This diverse mix of wetlands, saltpans, dunes, hills, vine forest, swamps, mangroves and woodlands is surely one of the most interesting and exciting backyards a city could have. The Common is a must-see for any naturalist or birdwatcher visiting the north and its signature bird – the brolga – adorns the University’s coat of arms and is the city’s faunal emblem.
