The Mangrove Boardwalk is a 1.4km stroll through the bio-diverse environment between Currumbene Creek and the Maritime Museum. From the boardwalk visitors can see Grey Mangroves, River Mangroves, bird species, crabs and other flora and fauna.

This is a birdwatcher's paradise. Over 150 species of birds have been identified in or around the mangroves of Jervis Bay, some of these are migratory waders, such as godwits and sandpipers which fly from Japan and Siberia to the wetlands of south-eastern Australia each year.

The most common permanent species include White Ibis, White Egret, Nankeen Night Heron, Grey Teal, Little Pied Cormorant, Black Cormorant, White Breasted Sea Eagle and White Face Heron.

Information notices are displayed strategically to assist visitors identify wildlife
