Very easy

Wander among the mangroves to step back in time to explore the old Schoolmaster’s House that was part of a once vibrant community in the area. Following devastating floods in 1955, the people moved from the area with the area still being leased as farmland. Now, these wetlands are protected as part of the national park ensuring the survival of the endangered ecological community of saltmarsh and all the fish, birds and other animals that rely on them for survival. Bring a picnic lunch and settle under a tree or bring binoculars and a bird guide. Take your time to enjoy all this area has on offer.

Yuelarbah walking track to Flaggy Creek

Download & Print Map and Notes




40 mins

1.3 km Return


52 m

Easy track

A great way to explore the tree canopy and valley in one easy walk. From the car park, you will be lead along a 100m long elevated timber boardwalk that brings you eye level with the tree canopy. Continue into the valley following the gently undulating wide track to cross Flaggy Creek using a solid suspension bridge. From the bridge, it is just 40m to a pleasant picnic area near the creek. You will find a rough track leading down to the rock platform that forms the Flaggy Creek bed, from the picnic area. The walk is gently sloping downhill most of the way to the picnic area, so it is uphill the way back.
