Sherwood Nature Reserve

Sherwood Nature Reserve provides opportunities for picnicking, birdwatching, car touring and bushwalking in a peaceful setting.

Discover the spectacular biodiversity and natural beauty of Sherwood Nature Reserve. Just a short drive from Coffs Harbour near Woolgoolga, you can 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. Not to mention the incredible birdlife that makes Sherwood a birdwatching mecca.

Go forest driving on Sherwood Forest drive and admire panoramic views of the coastline and Orara Valley. Enjoy peaceful bushwalking and outstanding birdwatching in the rainforest on Falls walking track. Or just sit back and relax at Woolgoolga Creek picnic area and immerse yourself in the tranquillity.
