Minnamurra Rainforest: Rainforest Icon of the NSW South Coast

Kevin Mills, Member of National Parks Association of NSW

“The reserve is a botanist’s paradise with scores of trees with birds’ nest ferns, elks’ horns, ferns and orchids.” 
H. A. Grace, visitor to Minnamurra Falls in 1896.

The botanist certainly finds much of interest at Minnamurra and the most casual visitor cannot help but be enthralled by the diversity of plants, in form and in species, and the scenery of this enclosed valley.
