Right beside Cullendulla Beach, the Mangrove walk is the only one of its kind in the entire area. Raised boardwalks thread through the marine park sanctuary zone of Cullendulla Creek.
At low tide, Australian white ibises forage in the sand here, while large groups of solider crabs march back and forth. The track also passes swamp oak forest, an endangered ecological community. Bring some binoculars and take advantage of the bench seats along the way for a round of birdwatching.
Signs along the walk help you get the most out of any visit, highlighting features like the unusual dune formations called 'cheniers.' These scenic ridges contain a staggering 7000 years of shoreline changes stored in their sand.
