Read more about Robertson Nature Reserve
Just a short drive from Moss Vale and Wollongong near the edge of the Illawarra Escarpment, Robertson Nature Reserve is a tiny reserve packed with natural wonders to delight the whole family.
Just a few footsteps from the car and you’ll find yourself surrounded by this rare remnant of dense Yarrawa Brush rainforest, which once covered the entire surrounding area.
Wander under the shady tree canopy, step over moss-covered roots and mottled tree trunks. Listen for the whip crack call of the eastern whipbird, or the sounds of a short-beaked echidna scurrying along the rainforest floor – this special place is great for wildlife-spotting and birdwatching.
Stroll through the rainforest on the wheelchair-friendly Rainforest walking track, then enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch.
You can visit the park as a day trip from Sydney, or spend the weekend and stay at one of the many accommodation options in the charming township of Robertson.
