This short walk invites you to see beautiful bushland and mangroves while experiencing the Aboriginal cultural heritage that makes this area so special.
Starting from Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre, you’ll follow a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk and walking track through eucalypt forest, woodlands and swamp forests, before emerging among the diverse mangrove communities along Tweed River.
Read about the plants, animals, bush tucker and culture of the Minjungbal people from interpretive signage along the way. For a fascinating local perspective, why not take a guided tour from Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre?
See Bora Ring, a sacred Aboriginal site traditionally used for men’s initiation ceremonies. Today, it continues to be an important place for Minjungbal people, providing a spiritual link with their ancestors.
This easy walk also offers great birdwatching opportunities. Keep your binoculars handy to see shorebirds and waders like the greater egret and royal spoonbill.
