At the northeast end of the bridge is the Jean Shaw Koala Reserve which is a wildlife corridor for native wildlife such as koalas and dingoes to reach the Myall Lakes. Myall Lakes National Park is a great area to visit. Cross the lake system on a small car ferry run by the National Parks and Wildlife Service at Bombah Point.
