The Tarrabora Reserve Bushcare Group was established on 2 March 1999 and assists with controlling environmental weeds and the revegetation of native plant species. The group is partnered with the Natural Areas Management Unit (NAMU) under the Beaches to Bushland Volunteer Landcare Program.

Tarrabora Reserve is a popular parkland located on Currumbin Creek at Palm Beach. It was saved from development in the 1960s and 70s by locals and a group known as the Currumbin Estuary Protection Committee, which has since changed its name to Friends of Currumbin.

The Reserve is under Council management (NAMU) and looked after by the Tarrabora Reserve Bushcare Group along with the Friends of Currumbin, who continue to carry out the role of protecting the Currumbin area.
