Karawatha Forest or Karawatha nature reserve is approximately 1000 hectares of bushland in the Brisbane suburbs of Karawatha and Stretton, Australia. The Karawatha Forest Protection Society was formed to ensure that the bushland was protected from development and is owned and managed by the Brisbane City Council (BCC).

The forest contains an important wetland area along Bulimba Creek and provides habitat for a number of threatened and endangered species including the Powerful Owl, Glossy Black Cockatoo and the Green Thighed Frog.

There are some 33 kilometres (21 mi) of BCC-sanctioned and maintained walking tracks in the reserve.

Significant landmarks within the forest include: Poet's Rock, the Old Quarry, Curtisii (formerly Paratz) Lookout, "the Rocks," Frog Hollow and the Illaweena Lagoon system.
