Things to do

    Exploring Tallebudgera

    The best way to explore these parks is along a 900m (one way) track and boardwalk that runs the length of the parks. It is a leisurely 30min stroll and information signs point out key features and animals found along the walk.

    The boardwalk hugs the tidal mudflats and winds its way through dense, twisted mangrove tree trunks that frame picturesque views of Tallebudgera Creek. Take time to catch glimpses of the diverse wildlife that depend on the tidal mangrove habitat, such as brightly coloured azure kingfishers and rainbow bee-eaters.

    Access this walk from the David Fleay Wildlife Park car park or from Ocean Parade (please be aware there is limited parking along this access).

    Please be aware that the northern side of Tallebudgera Creek is prone to landslides at any time and especially during and after severe weather events. The walking track may be closed following a landslide. Please observe all signs and check Park alerts for updates.
