Really recommend this, there are a couple of walks you can take. Lots of wildlife to see and varying types of bush from mangroves and scrubland to pockets of rainforest. Just remember to take the Aerogard as there are lots of mosquitos near the water.

A lovely morning walk along a well kept boardwalk with lots of gorgeous birdlife and flora to see. Easy and flat and mostly well marked (but you need to pay attention). An excellent 60-90 minute morning walk if you are up for it.

OMG go at dusk and you'll see fruit bats everywhere. Wait until it's nearly dark and there are literally thousands of them flying and the noise is amazing. I LOVED this place.

The Kooloonbung Creek Nature Reserve and Historical Cemetery are easily missed despite their central location and the obvious ancient gravestones at the top of the slope above the city sign might discourage a closer look. Nevertheless, a stroll through this park is rewarding for its serenity and its beauty. Beginning at the cemetery brings the visitor to tombs and gravestones of those long forgotten. Yet they tell a story of lives young and old who passed this way and whose passing must have brought great sorrow to their loved ones. Most interesting were the graves and obituaries of two British soldiers who served in different ways under the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars two hundred years ago. Their presence and their stories brings a far flung segment of history and Empire into the local heritage. What stories might they have told and what influence did their larger-than-life involvement in those conflicts have on their community? On leaving the Cemetery a descent to a boardwalk through the mangroves brings a natural reality that complements the historical one. Although there are five kilometres of walking track in the park we confined ourselves to a short walk back to the road, enjoying the sight of numerous birds and the rapid inflow of a rising tide in Koonloonbung Creek. We had a very pleasant and rewarding time in this tranquil environment, moved by its history and appreciative of its natural beauty. A place to visit, enjoy and quietly appreciate.

had my first will koala here. Path is generally easy. Lots of wildlife, only a couple go km's, so not hard. Definitely worth a visit one morning or afternoon if your keen on wildlife.

I get really freaked out by the gathering of more than two bats in the same place. This place delivers mega big time on freak out material for me. Given that, the general area is interesting environmentally, with walkways to get you into the area. Some of the habitat is important to local species. I think it is a good attempt to make good some devastation perpetrated by thoughtless developers who some years ago now filled in important wetlands in the vicinity, alienating habitat to important flora and fauna. Maybe it will recover by the end of several more decades, with enough love and care. Either way, take a look. Take a photo or two.

This is a nice board walk through paper bark trees.
This is a loop walk and at one part, you can leave the boardwalk and see the historical cemetery.

Worth a look with an added adventure through the wetlands, Children would need to be kept close at hand if they are not controlled on the boardwalk.

Just a short drive to Gordon street and you’ll find this little gem. Great place to do a nature walk without having to get out of the Port.
