Dampier Flora Reserve was created in January 2021. It covers an area of 263ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

The reserve lies in the rugged and remote coastal ranges on the Far South Coast of NSW, west of Narooma and Bodalla. Close to the town of Belowra, Dampier Flora Reserve is part of the traditional lands of the Walbanga Clan of the Yuin People.

Dampier Flora Reserve links up with a vast tract of mostly intact forest along the Great Dividing Range's eastern escarpment. This habitat corridor stretches 535km north to south, from the Illawarra region to the state border with Victoria.

Dampier Flora Reserve bolsters protection for animal species in nearby Dampier State Forest and Deua National Park, where threatened owls are found.

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 is to ensure management is consistent with the adjoining national parks and reserves.
