The Hunter River is immensely significant to the Wunambal Gaambera people as it is inhabited by the Wunggurr (creator snake). It was named in 1820 by Lieutenant Phillip Parker King. Dense and ecologically important mangrove communities in Porosus Creek provide excellent wildlife viewing and are inhabited by large estuarine crocodiles.
