Brimbin Nature Reserve is located approximately 12km North West of Taree and an easy 20 minutes drive from town.
Brimbin Nature Reserve has important historic connections with Taree and Port Macquarie’s early settlement being situated on the original main road between the two centres in the days of horse-drawn transport. This area is also significant to the local Biripi people. The name “Brimbin” is an Aboriginal word derived from “Borembit” or stringybark, a tree species common in the reserve.
Brimbin is home to an endangered species of eucalypt, the narrow leaved redgum, Eucalyptus seeana, which occurs at its southern limit in the Taree area. This species is an important food and habitat for koalas.
Located on the banks of the Dawson River and Tommy Owens Creek, there is a day use picnic area with shelter, free gas BBQs, and water and amenities. There is also two walking tracks to choose from: the Dawson River walk and the Kate Kelly walk.
