    Best times to visit


    Migratory birds arrive from Russia, Asia, northeast China, and Europe for the warmer months, foraging on the sand flats where you can see them from Cullendulla Beach.


    Break out the canoe or kayak and beat the summer heat with a refreshing paddle up Cullendulla Creek.


    Make the short hike to Square Head to do the Mangrove walk, watching how the landscape changes in high and low tide.

    Disability access level - medium

    • A flat boardwalk winds from the carpark to Cullendulla Beach for almost 1km. The boardwalk consists of open timber slats on the sandy ground.
    • Some assistance may be required for wheelchairs, prams, and visitors with limited mobility along the boardwalk, and on the short grass area between the carpark and start of the walk.
    • It's possible to continue along the beach to connect with Mangrove walk loop. While a boardwalk section of Mangrove walk is wheelchair-accessible, parts of the track are sand or rough dirt track with many tree roots, making wheelchair access hard.

    Medium access presents some minor difficulties, such as a grassy surface. You may require a little assistance to get around in some areas.



    Pets and domestic animals (other than certified assistance animals) are not permitted. Find out which regional parks allow dog walking and see the pets in parks policy for more information.


    NSW national parks are no smoking areas.
