    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.


    Escape the heat with a tranquil stroll through the rainforest down to the river, enjoying cool canopy shade.


    When the weather is wet, the mushrooms are in full bloom in the reserve and you'll be able to spot some amazingly bright and beautiful colours.
