Seven thousand years of shoreline events are preserved in the 'chenier' dune complex at Cullendulla Creek Nature Reserve, a place studied by scientists around the world. The reserve also protects one of the largest stands of mangroves south of Sydney, and has significant Aboriginal middens and burial sites.
The Mangrove Walk winds through exceptional landscape via a 300m boardwalk and the beach at low tide or a track behind the beach at high tide. There are informative signs along the way.
