Rainforest walk is a 0.8km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Coramba Nature Reserve, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Few rainforest walks are as lovely as this walk found in Coramba Nature Reserve. A relaxing 800m return walk will take you down to Orara River, following under the cool canopy of the rainforest and past majestic old-growth trees.
The rainforest here is one of a few remaining stands of lowland rainforest along the Orara River and has been listed as endangered. Thankfully, a regeneration program has protected and preserved it for visitors to enjoy.
This is also a wonderful place to go birdwatching, as here you'll spot the many native birds of the area, including rose-crowned fruit doves, figbirds, noisy pittas, brown cuckoo doves and white-headed pigeons.
