Getting there and parking
Get driving directions
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.
