Australian walking track Grade: 3
Start: Daniel Cres, Lemon Tree Passage

The first section of this walk, from Daniel Cres to Lemon Tree Passage foreshore, is made up of boardwalks and formed, unsealed pathways. While not signposted, the paths are easy to follow and afford excellent views of Tilligerry Creek.
From the foreshore at Lemon Tree Passage towards Mallabula, follow the shoreline. The very best time to do this is at low tide. There is lots of walking across rocks and through the bush. If the tide is high, be prepared to remove your boots or shoes and walk through the water in order to get to Mallabula.
From Mallabula, follow the shoreline again until it links up with Tanilba Bay Boardwalk, which winds its way past Tilligerry Habitat. At the end of the boardwalk is Peace Park. From here, continue on the bike track back towards Lemon Tree Passage.https://hunterhikingtrails.com/tilligerry-peninsula-circuit/

Located on the far side of the marina, Koala Reserve is a foreshore reserve set amongst the eucalypts.
A foreshore boardwalk starts at this park and meanders through to Nyrang Park.

Tilligerry Habitat Reserve is a 9 ha flora and fauna reserve along a sandy foreshore on Tanilba Bay between the townships of Tanilba Bay and Mallabula.
Tilligerry Habitat Association is a not for profit, charitable, incorporated association that manages the crown land reserve and staffs the Environment Centre.
Our members volunteer their time to staff the environment centre 7 days a week between 9am and 3pm. We also supervise volunteer work teams on Mondays and Tuesdays. Members and volunteers have worked for this site since 1993 with the goal of preserving, supporting and improving it for locals and visitors.
People from all over the world come to meet an Aussie – and sometimes they see a koala as well. You can help us by volunteering to man the centre and/or work;
