Tugun Hill Conservation Area

The Tugun Hill Conservation Area is about 16 hectares in size. It forms part of the Currumbin to Cobaki wetlands habitat corridor. This area is of national significance for nature conservation because of its high diversity of flora and fauna.

The conservation area protects one of the last remaining populations of the endangered Blackbutt. This vegetation type has been reduced by land clearing. It is otherwise poorly represented in protected areas. The high integrity of this community provides habitat for arboreal fauna such as koalas, possums and gliders. The understorey has a diverse range of ground dwelling mammals including:

  • common planigale
  • northern brown bandicoot
  • yellow-footed antechinus
  • grassland melomys
  • swamp wallaby.

There are moderate walking tracks throughout the reserve with a return circuit walk of approximately 900 metres.

There is a small playground at the Mireen Drive end of the park (number 51, between 47 and 50 Mireen Drive).
