BLACKBUTT FOREST RESERVE

Blackbutt Reserve is the largest natural bushland reserve in the Illawarra and is the last remaining coastal plain forest in the area.

 

Its location in the heart of a suburban area provides a habitat for many native plants and animals. Cockatoos and parrots rely on the hollows created by the old-growth forest, and it is home to a colony of endangered Grey Headed Flying Foxes.
