Tarrabora Reserve

Tarrabora Reserve

Tarrabora Reserve is a popular natural parkland located on Currumbin Creek at Palm Beach.

The reserve has been a popular spot for locals and visitors alike due to its location, beautiful scenery and the passive recreational opportunities that include swimming, walking and picnics. The reserve also provides a visual buffer and refuge for wildlife, particularly birds and reptiles, with a number of plant communities including important saltmarsh vegetation, dunal systems, Banksia woodland and closed forest.

The Reserve is under the management of the City of Gold Coast 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 through volunteer Bushcare works.
