Read more about Coramba Nature Reserve

Coramba Nature Reserve was created in 1982 to preserve and protect one of the few remaining stands of subtropical lowland rainforest that lies along the Orara River. Today, visitors can walk through this remnant of native vegetation, amongst the towering old-growth trees, under a closed canopy forest that has been successfully brought back to life through a rainforest regeneration project.

Walking along the river, you’ll see a lot of interesting plant life, including white booyong, pepperberry, giant stinging trees and ficus species. In the wetter months, the colours of the funghi are exquisite, with their hues of vivid pink, yellow, white and orange.

There’s no shortage of interesting wildlife here either. You’re likely to hear giant barred frogs on hot summer nights or spot yellow-bellied gliders and long-nosed potoroos any day of the year. There’s also plenty to excite those interested in birdwatching, including wompoo and rose-crowned fruit doves, figbirds, noisy pittas, brown cuckoo doves and white-headed pigeons.
