This tiny reserve is not part of the area of the ‘Big Scrub’, but is all that remains of an area once known as Boyd’s Scrub. Several stands of gallery rainforest, including black bean and silky oak, provide habitat for a large colony of grey-headed flying-foxes and endangered black flying-foxes.
It is the most important example of black bean rainforest in NSW and is just off the Summerland Way near the locality of Old Grevillia, 26km north of Kyogle.
You may see groups of grey-headed flying foxes hanging from tree limbs near the picnic area. Their natural foods are native fruits and the blossoms and nectar of eucalypts. When the bats are in residence, please avoid disturbing them as much as possible. Birds that may be seen include Brown Capped Emerald Dove, Rose-Crowned Fruit Dove, Noisy Pitta, Barred Cockatoo-Shrike, Golden Whistler and the Azure Kingfisher.
