Wingham Brush Nature Reserve

Wingham Brush Nature Reserve near Taree on the Mid-North Coast, makes a great family day trip or school excursion. See flying foxes, enjoy birdwatching and easy walking in the rainforest.

Located beside Manning River, just near Taree on the Mid North Coast, you’ll find an oasis of subtropical lowland rainforest at Wingham Brush Nature Reserve. It provides a fantastic day trip and excursion for the whole family.

Also known as ‘The Brush’, this reserve preserves one of only a few remnants of this rare rainforest type in Australia, and is a significant roosting and maternity site for the vulnerable grey-headed flying fox. Stand under the canopy and you’ll see hundreds of flying foxes hanging above you.

Wander along the wheelchair-accessible boardwalk and follow easy walking tracks to discover the vibrant life under the canopy. There are great opportunities for photography and birdwatching, and lovely places to picnic by the river nearby. Don’t miss the spectacular show at sunset, when all those flying foxes glide overhead in search of food.
