A nice little walk along a boardwalk with a local cat that sometimes greets you at the gate. Better to go before late afternoon as there can be many and I mean many mosquitos around the area

Sadly we didn't realise the deal and discovered that we couldn't access the trail after 4, so we left our run too late. Maybe next time.

Once you have the key which is available from the kiosk nearby, you go through the gate into the interpretive centre and they have great pictures and notes on the birds and plants etc. It would be more interesting to do this walk with the tide either coming in or going out so that you could see the mud crabs...

Take a gentle stroll along the boardwalk and sea nature at its finest. The staff at the centre are always on hand to help.

The Mangrove Trail was established by the local council about 20 years ago and provides a valuable insight into the breeding grounds of fish such as mullet, gar fish and whiting as well as crabs among a remnant of grey mangrove forest.

This is the boardwalk through the mangroves is in St Kilda, South Australia, NOT Melbourne, Vic. This board walk could be a valuable tourism asset for the area, (and indeed it used to be) however, it has been allowed to run down. Not all of the boardwalk is open due to safety issues, and a tower platform for viewing is... More

The St Kilda Mangroves are in South Australia, not Victoria. This listing has confused people and the location is marked incorrectly. I see people here are reviewing the more well know beach side suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, (I don't recall seeing any mangrove wet lands there,) and other reviews are of the actual St Kilda Mangrove Trail/Boardwalk which is just...
