    Best times to visit

    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Coramba Nature Reserve. Here are some of the highlights.


    Take a walk along Orara River and bring your binoculars to spot native birds, such as wompoo fruit doves, rose-crowned fruit doves, figbirds, noisy pitas, brown cuckoo doves and white-headed pigeons.
