Mann River Nature Reserve

A beautiful riverside spot for picnicking and camping, Mann River Nature Reserve offers scenic views, swimming and fishing near Glen Innes.

Nestled amongst the magnificent mountain range of northern NSW lies a tranquil riverside setting. With loads of natural beauty and historic significance, Mann River Nature Reserve is perched on the eastern edge of the New England Tablelands, near Glen Innes. With superb scenic views across The Great Dividing Range, it’s ideal for camping or stopping for a picnic on a car tour. Nature lovers will revel in the abundant wildlife, crystal clear waters and clear mountain air.

Historically, the area would have been a popular gathering place for local Aboriginal groups. Ngarabul People from the northern tablelands as well as the coastal Gunbaynggir would have made the most of the abundant wildlife and natural beauty.

Once popular with bushrangers, it’s now filled with self-sufficient campers who enjoy swimming and rock-hopping along the majestic Mann River. If you’re after something more leisurely, make like a lizard and sun yourself on the smooth boulders along the river’s edge.
