Cudgen Nature Reserve

Natural Attractions

Escape the Tweed Coast crowds and head to Cudgen Nature Reserve. Great for school excursions, with opportunities for fishing, canoeing, picnicking and birdwatching.

Visit Cudgen Nature Reserve and you’ll quickly leave the hectic Tweed Coast behind, as you surround yourself in a mosaic of beauty and contrasting landscapes.

It’s a modest reserve, but it’s packed full of things to see and do for the whole family. Indulge in picnicking at Cudgen picnic area and admire the dramatic backdrop of Wollumbin Mount Warning.

It’s also a great spot for birdwatching and home to some of the last remaining koalas on the Tweed Coast, so keep a lookout in the trees around the lake and near Round Mountain.

Go sailing on the lake or explore the shorelines and birdlife by kayak or canoe. And if that’s not enough, the beach nearby also offers great fishing and surfing.
