Korrongulla Wetland

Korrongulla Wetland is an annex of Wollongong Botanic Garden.

Located near Lake Illawarra in Primbee, it features a series of lagoons and wetlands, as well as coastal forest.

The site was originally inhabited by local Aboriginal peoples, who remain the Custodians of the Land. Learn more on our Timeline.

Since European settlement, the site has been used for farming and industrial purposes. Despite these different uses, Korrongulla has still retained significant vegetation and is home to these endangered plant communities:

  • Swap Oak Forest
  • Coastal Sand Bangalay-Blackbutt forest
  • Coastal Sand Freshwater wetland
  • Hind-Dune littoral Rainforest.

It is also home to threatened animal species such as the Green and Golden Bell Frog, Black Bittern and Pink Robin.


Korrongulla Wetland can be accessed via Nicolle Road, Primbee.
