Wildlife: The Sportsground is just off Billabong Creek and thus we may get the occasional wildlife on site. Please do not disturb the animals. The site may potentially have some dangerous creatures (snakes, spiders etc), however there will be an on site Chirurgeon, and the hospital is around the corner, if required.
