Brimbin Nature Reserve

Natural Attractions

Brimbin Nature Reserve, located on the NSW Mid North Coast, only 9km north of Taree, is a great spot for canoeing, walking, birdwatching and picnicking.

Brimbin Nature Reserve is just a stone’s throw from Taree and a tranquil place of mangrove-lined waterways for canoeing, short trails for walking and shady areas for picnicking. Yet, over the century following European settlement of this area – the traditional land of the Biripi Nation – the place had a surprisingly dynamic history.

Along with being the site of significant stock routes, bullock roads and river crossings, it was also part of a property owned by New South Wales’ only independent female colonial settler, Isabella Mary Kelly. Ms Kellys walking track and Ms Kellys Crossing were named in her honour. Tommy Owens Crossing and Creek are in memory of the 12-year-old boy.
