Sherwood Nature Reserve

Sherwood Nature Reserve

There’s a good reason Sherwood Nature Reserve was a highly guarded secret among locals for a long time.

Explore its striking landscapes, ranging from rugged sandstone escarpments and coastal ridges to dry open forests and lush, vibrant subtropical rainforests. This ultimate peaceful retreat is just a short drive from Coffs Harbour, and offers opportunities for picnicking, birdwatching, scenic driving tours, and bushwalking. Nature lovers will enjoy the abundance of wildlife to be spotted in Sherwood Nature Reserve, with old-growth forests and other habitats providing refuge for more than fifty species of native animals including the Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby, Long-nosed Potoroo, Powerful Owl, Giant Barred Frog, and Leaf-tailed Gecko.

Take a forest drive and admire panoramic views of the coastline and the Orara Valley, enjoy peaceful bushwalking with outstanding bird watching along Falls Walking Track. Or simply sit back and relax at Woolgoolga Creek picnic area and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of this natural wonderland.
