The Coolibah Walk is located along both banks of the Barcoo River which borders Tambo on the northern side. The river flows well after the wet season and then dries to waterholes as the dry season takes hold. The river, with its many swimming holes and fishing spots, is part of the Tambo way of life.

If you take the walk in the early morning or evening you will marvel at the birdlife that can be found in these shaded areas. Just stop and listen and you will hear a plethora of different bird life. Take along a drink and a snack as there are picnic tables dotted along the walk so you can enjoy more time relaxing under the shady trees.

The walk is well sign posted and you will find waterholes which have played a major part in Tambo's history. The Garden Hole once provided water for the Chinese gardeners who kept Tambo supplied with fresh fruit and vegetables. Sand Bank was, and still is, a favourite fishing spot.

Specimens of the native flora along the trail are identified with informative signage, providing an educational pathway and promoting the natural resources and species of the area.
