Warragai Creek Nature Reserve

Open, check current alerts 


Warragai Creek Nature Reserve was created in January 1999. It covers an area of 186ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Warragai Creek Nature Reserve is located approximately 17 km north-east of Grafton, in the lowland foothills of the Clarence Valley.

Covering an area of 186 hectares, the reserve was formerly part of Southgate State Forest, and is bounded to the north and south by that forest. The reserve has been heavily logged and grazed in the past but is considered to be significant in conserving the Clarence Lowlands Spotted Gum Forest Ecosystem at low elevation; an ecosystem that has been extensively cleared and is poorly conserved.

The reserve also provides habitat to a number of threatened species including the endangered weeping paperbark (Melaleuca irbyana) and native milkwort (Polygala linariifolia). It is also a key component of an area containing a regionally significant population of koalas.

There are no formal recreational facilities provided in this reserve.
