We followed the signs to the Mangrove Walk then found that we needed an access key from the kiosk by the boat ramp. Unfortunately there is no path directly there and back so in the car and drive and park at the kiosk which also serves food etc so at a busy time you line up with everyone waiting for... More

Must see Adelaide attraction. Well prepared and maintained walk which manages to be both educational and relaxing. Highly recommended.

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. It is also home to many resident and migratory birds, so it's well worth the effort to visit... More

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
