This printed metal interpretative sign is set at an angle atop a square steel post near the lower car park, near the Amphitheatre of Bradleys Head, and the toilet block. It has a child-like artistic border around a painting of a Kookaburra, and the following information:

Indigenous Name: Guganagina
Latin Name: Kookaburra dacelo

Description: The kookaburra has brown wings and white feathers. They are said to "laugh" because of their unique call.

Food: Kookaburras eat snakes, insects and small reptiles. Be careful - they can swoop down and take meat out of your hands. Please don't feed them.

Habitat: Kookaburras live in trees and are territorial. They are native to Australia and New Guinea.

Fun Fact: Did you know that Kookaburras are the world's largest kingfishers?
