Read more about Victoria Park Nature Reserve
Victoria Park Nature Reserve protects one of the last surviving remnants of the original rainforest, known as the Big Scrub, which extended across the entire Lismore, Byron Bay, Ballina and Mullumbimby regions. It’s a perfect spot for a relaxing day out with the family in the Northern Rivers.
Stroll the easy and accessible boardwalk and you’ll immediately be transported to a tranquil tropical wonderland. Ancient fig trees and majestic black beans tower above while bangalow palms and ferns grow up from below. Take a moment to absorb the cool quiet of the rainforest and you might catch a glimpse of the shy red-legged pademelon or the colourful wompoo fruit-dove.
The informative displays show how the Wildjabul people, of the Bundjalung nation, relied on the local plants and animals for food, medicine and ceremonies.
When thoughts turn to lunch, enjoy a relaxing barbecue at the shaded picnic tables, to a backdrop of lush rainforest. The accessible facilities make the picnic area an ideal spot for older people and groups.
