The Henty Government Dam Nature Reserve is a delight for bird lovers, where up to 140 different bird species either make their home or migrate for the season.
The Reserve is only 750 metres off the Olympic Highway (access gained along the Pleasant Hills Road).
Two walking tracks through the reserve were developed by the Henty Rotary Club to allow visitors to enjoy the native vegetation and regional wildlife and form a part of a Wildlife Corridor between Henty and Pleasant Hills.
A Picnic ground has been created by the Rotary Club of Henty and the Doodle Cooma Landcare Group have established a living seed bank from local species of flora. Still in its early stages, this site will become a mecca for those interested in Australian Flora & Fauna.
Government Dam Nature Reserve is part of the Eastern Riverina Landcare Eco-tour which takes in 10 ecologically sensitive sites in and around the towns of Henty, Pleasant Hills, The Rock, Mangoplah and Lockhart.
