Coramba Nature Reserve is a special place. Here are just some of the reasons why:

Protected rainforest

The reserve, though small, is an important ecological community, as it is one of only a very few remaining stands of lowland rainforest along Orara River and is listed as endangered under the Threatened Species Conservation (TSC) Act. A successful rainforest regeneration program has been carried out to protect the reserve's natural resources.

Aboriginal culture

The reserve's name is taken from the name of the nearby town of Coramba, which is in turn derived from the local Aboriginal Gumbaynggirr name for mountain. The land has once served as a fringe dwelling site and meeting place for the Gumbaynggirr people.
