The Hayters Hill Nature Reserve is a protected nature reserve that is located in the Northern Rivers region in the state of New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 8-hectare (20-acre) forest remnant is located on high ground some 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) southwest of Byron Bay.
Features and location
The reserve is one of a few small nature reserves including the Andrew Johnston Big Scrub, Victoria Park, Davis Scrub, Boatharbour and Wilsons Peak flora and nature reserves that conserve rainforests typical of the once extensive Big Scrub. The Big Scrub comprised 75,000 hectares (190,000 acres) of lowland subtropical rainforest which was largely cleared for agriculture in the late 19th century.
