Sherwood Nature Reserve is such a magical spot and for a long time its location was a highly guarded secret among locals. This unique, peaceful location, just a short drive from Coffs Harbour, provides opportunities for picnicking, bird watching, car touring, and bushwalking.
Sherwood Nature Reserve is a spectacular, environmentally diverse area, rich with natural beauty that will be a joy to discover. Explore striking landscapes ranging from rugged sandstone escarpments and coastal ridges to dry open forests, heaths and vibrant subtropical rainforests.
There’s an abundance of wildlife to see, with old-growth forests and other habitats providing refuge for over 50 native animals including the Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby, Long-nosed Potoroo, Powerful Owl, Giant Barred Frog and Leaf-tailed Gecko.
Go forest driving on Sherwood Forest Drive and admire panoramic views of the coastline and the Orara Valley. Enjoy peaceful bushwalking and outstanding bird watching in the rainforest on Falls Walking Track. Or, if you prefer, just sit back and relax at Woolgoolga Creek picnic area and immerse yourself in the tranquillity.
