The printed metal sign is set at an obtuse angle, on the wooden railing beside the boardwalk walkway between the road (Riverside Drive) and the Lane Cove River. It has a drawing of a Bass in the middle, with a map of Australia showing the distribution of the fish, in a thin strip to the south-eastern edge of Australia. The transcriptions follows:

'Australian bass naturally inhabit coastal freshwater and estuarine river systems of south-eastern Australia. Bass favour snaggy river corners and river banks strewn with logs, boulders and reeds where they feed upon insects, crustaceans, small fish and earthworms.

'Bass live their lives within a single river system. During winter most of the mature fish move downstream to the salt-water estuary to spawn. In the summer, the adult and juvenile bass move upstream to the freshwater reaches of the river. The fish-ladder enables the bass to complete their migratory route.'

Access: The Lane Cove National Park is only open during daylight hours, and there is a $8 charge for vehicles, though you are able to walk, run, or cycle through - for free.
