A leisurely and scenic 15 minute walk west along Woolgoolga Creek Road from Halcyon Retreat is Sherwood Nature Reserve and Woolgoolga Creek Picnic Area. Beyond the picnic area an easy walking track enables visitors to make the 1.75km stroll to the waterfall and enjoy the magnificent rainforest habitat.
The Reserve is now part of NSW National Parks and an area of spectacular bio diversity. It contains subtropical rainforest and a wide range of fauna including flying foxes, frogs, swamp wallabies, possums and gliders.
The reserve is an excellent location for observing bird life including the Wompoo and Rose-crowned fruit doves, honeyeaters, noisy pittas, lyrebirds and bush turkeys to name just a few.
