Barrington Tops Flora Reserve was created in November 2020. It covers an area of 163ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Located near Gloucester, the reserve is part of Worimi Country. It lies on the rugged Mount Royal Range, along the eastern escarpment of the Great Dividing Range.

Barrington Tops Flora Reserve is part of the North Coast Koala Management Area. It links up with other important conservation lands that together form a regional habitat corridor for wildlife.

The reserve is adjacent to the north-east corner of Barrington Tops National Park, the preserve of ancient, World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests. Together with Barrington Tops State Forest, that national park forms part of an Important Bird Area. These areas are lands that Birdlife International deems to be globally important for bird conservation. Barrington Tops National Park is home to more than 116 bird species.

About flora reserves

Flora reserves were established under the Forestry Act 2012 and remain State Forest. Under a unique management arrangement, this land is managed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. This ensures management is consistent with the adjoining national parks, which are also being managed for their cultural values and for koala conservation.
