Kooloonbung Creek Nature Park has over 7 kilometres of walkways all in cooee of the Port Macquarie CBD.

It’s a natural paradise close to many residents. More people are using the walkways to: soak up nature; educate school groups studying environmental assets and their place in a healthy biodiversity; keep fit either walking, running, or cycling.

Photographers capture images of wildlife, graphic detail of plants, shapes or textures, or the larger beautiful landscape.

National Parks walking groups and bird watchers frequently go through the park, and tourists flock here to experience Australian bushland different to their homeland.

The best entrance is at the western end of the Gordon Street bridge. Council has improved the entry pathway with bitumen and soon a sign will make the entry point more obvious.

The beauty of the area, with its bird songs and the pleasure of seeing lizards, turtles, fish and eels in the creeks, or spotting koalas in the eucalyptus trees, makes this walking adventure a perfect activity.

Friends of Kooloonbung Creek Nature Park are always in need of volunteers to help look after this great environmental asset. We mostly work on a Monday, 8.30am, until noon.
