    The Mangrove walk is in the western section of Cullendulla Creek Nature Reserve. To get there from Batemans Bay:

    • Follow the Princes Highway to North Batemans Bay and Surfside, turning right onto Peninsula Drive.
    • Turn into McLeod Street, Timbara Crescent, then Myamba Parade.
    • A carpark is available off Myamba Parade, adjacent to Surfside Beach. Follow a short boardwalk to Cullendulla Beach; the Mangrove walk begins along the dune behind the beach.


    Parking is available at a public carpark off Myamba Parade, Surfside, though a short walk is required to reach the mangroves.

    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.

    Safety messages

    Bushwalking safety

    If you're keen to head out on a longer walk or a backpack camp, always be prepared. Read these bushwalking safety tips before you set off on a walking adventure in national parks.

    Mobile safety

    Dial Triple Zero (000) in an emergency. Download the Emergency Plus app before you visit, it helps emergency services locate you using your smartphone's GPS. Please note there is limited mobile phone reception in this park and you’ll need mobile reception to call Triple Zero (000).


    Disability access level - hard

    While the boardwalk section through the mangroves is suitable for wheelchairs, parts of the track are sand and this makes wheelchair access difficult.



    A current NSW recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in all waters.

    Recreational fishing is allowed in the bay. However, Cullendulla Creek is a sanctuary zone, so it’s a good idea to check the recreational fishing maps for permitted activities.



    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.
