The Meeniyan Bird Hide is thanks to community partnership between the Meeniyan Progress Association and South Gippsland Water. It was constructed in early 2021 by Toora construction company Hilder Homes and was officially opened in early May.

The hide is located at the Meeniyan Wastewater Treatment Plant which South Gippsland Water officially opened in 2012. Driven by another local partnership, the Sewer Meeniyan Action Committee (SMAC), the plant is a series of lagoons that filter waste before returning water for reuse in suitable places nearby such as the racecourse, golf club and recreation reserve.

Right next to the Great Southern Rail Trail, the bird viewing area at the wetlands is perfectly positioned for walkers and cyclists to share the joy of seeing the range of bird species amongst the revegetated habitat.
