An ideal path for walking or cycling, this easy track traces the edge of Bombah Broadwater in the southern section of Myall Lakes National Park, just to the north of Port Stephens. The walking track leads to Tamboi picnic area and the historic fishing village of Tamboi, which is situated across the river.
Tamboi walking track passes through tall swamp forests, where you’ll see cabbage palms and paperbarks as well as swamp mahogany. Look for the startling swamp lilies with their spray of leaves and magnificent white flowers in early summer.
Myall Lakes National Park protects a diversity of forests and lake systems which attracts masses of migratory birds, so bring your binoculars for some excellent birdwatching. Spine tailed swifts are often seen in the skies above in summer, however they rarely land. You might also see white egrets, grebes and kingfishers. For a longer hike continue pass Tamboi along the Mungo walking track.
