The end part was a little confusing when you come out into a car park which is not the same one as where you started. Luckily we had done a bit of research and knew that if we followed the road, we would end up back where we parked.

if you're in the area check out this walk, if not I don't think it's worth the trip. wear insect repellent.

Nice stroll to take your time observing, listening and smelling. Late arvo light adds to the atmosphere.

We were hoping to see the rainbow bee eaters but none were to be seen today though we have seen them here in the past. We enjoyed watching all of the different crabs among the mangroves though and also a couple of kingfishers.

Nice walk for birdwatchers. This area is supposed to be good to spot Rainbow Honeyeaters. I didn't see any but I could hear them.

Did this with one of the scheduled guided tours on a weekend. Learned a fair bit about the history and plantlife. Lots of birdlife and the odd bearded dragon along the trail.

Can get very wet at times. Watch out for bike riders.
