Few rainforest walks are as lovely as this walk found in Coramba Nature Reserve. A relaxing 800m return walk will take you down to Orara River, following under the cool canopy of the rainforest and past majestic old-growth trees.

The rainforest here is one of a few remaining stands of lowland rainforest along the Orara River and has been listed as endangered. Thankfully, a regeneration program has protected and preserved it for visitors to enjoy.

This is also a wonderful place to go birdwatching, as here you’ll spot the many native birds of the area, including rose-crowned fruit doves, figbirds, noisy pittas, brown cuckoo doves and white-headed pigeons.
