Telegraph Creek Nature Trail is a circular walk with signs describing interesting aspects of the vegetation along the way. The trail begins at the northern end of the Green Patch car park or where it is signposted along Jervis Bay Road near the Green Patch turn-off. The walk is 2.4 kilometres long and takes roughly one hour to complete. The walking track is graded as easy.

Green Patch is a beautiful picnic area within Booderee National Park, with interesting bushwalks, wildflowers in spring, and safe swimming in clear blue water. Many native birds and kangaroos can be seen in the early morning and late afternoon. Green Patch also offers a sheltered beach with beautiful white sand, toilets, showers, wood barbecues and picnic tables.

Booderee is owned by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community. Enjoy your visit to beautiful Booderee and please care for the land and waters, as this is a very special place. To enter the park you’ll need a park pass, which you can pre-purchase online for quick and easy entry.
