Tarrabora Reserve is a small vegetated area on the north bank of Currumbin Estuary that was saved from development in 1979. It stands as a testimony to the determination of the Gold Coast community to unite, to protect and nurture our precious natural environment. It is a special place for the community because of its history and its unique leafy beach setting.
