Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best place to see kangaroos in Gold Cost.
There's also a koala walk area, where you can see plenty of koalas if you look carefully.

Beautiful easy out and back or around on maintenance trails joining track. Abundance of wildlife, birds, koalas, kangaroos, echidna,
This trail starts next to southport airstrip at the end of shelter road, just go right to the end after coming in through the gates that look like you cannot enter,go past the boardwalk entrance sign on the right continue down the road to the end and park.
There is a small sign that says Koala trail, and that’s it.
An easy flat gravel wide pathway through pastures and trees and wetlands and tea tree bush with giant gums and koalas. We saw 2 but I am told there is 100’s, just knowing where to look for them.
Kangaroos everywhere, such a peaceful and pretty walk.
About 7k out and back but you can go off on the maintenance tracks all interlinking to the trail.
There is a boardwalk that joins the walk along the river, will do that next time.
Wear bug spray in summer as there is swampy waters around.
Track is dry, flat and easy to walk on.
Kids will love it.
To be 5 minutes from Harbourtown and in this nature was truely amazing.

Absolutely beautiful area, lots of walks (you can walk many miles here). Paths are well signed and maintained. Lots of wildlife to see as well. There are loads and loads of kangaroos (wild and not for petting/feeding). I also spotted a few koala's as well

Kangeroos Kangeroos Kangeroos ... and Kuala's too

So many kangeroos, just perfect for the kids.

And if you look carefully, you might just spot a Kula, or two.

We often go for a walk in this area accessed by Shelter Road [ plenty of parking] or Hansford road. It is shady, flat and well maintained. Every time we have visited there has been loads of kangaroos. There is also a koala track that you can follow, although we have not spotted one .You can walk along a mangrove boardwalk and tracks.Bring insect repellent if it has recently rained.It is not suitable for dog walking due to the abundance of wildlife. You could picnic here . Best to bring a blanket as no seating is available. Also no toilets.

My new favourite place to walk. Started at the Myola Court car park to do the Mangroves Boardwalk, and continued along the circuit where I encountered kangaroos- finished on the Boundary trail which passed the Estuary - and looped back to my car.

It’s free - peaceful, well maintained and seeing the kangaroos is a bonus.

Next time I’ll return and park at River Tree Glen so I can do the tracks on the other side 🤩

Want to see wilde kangaroos? COME HERE - there are literally hundreds, Just opposite the airstrip. Best time is early morning or just before dusk!

Surprisingly large area easily accessible via Rain Tree Glen. If you have some international guests who want to see some kangaroos and an occasional koala. Take them here for free. You can get up close with the kangaroos.
