Pipe Clay Lake

Pipe Clay Creek

Pipe Clay Lake is a small estuary located in the traditional lands of the Gumbaynggirr people in Corindi, around 40 kilometres north of Coffs Harbour.  The estuary is an Intermittently Closed and Open Lake or Lagoon (ICOLL) meaning that its entrance connection to the ocean is sometimes open and sometimes closed. In recent times it has been mostly closed, typically opening to the sea about five times a year for just two to five days at a time.  The total waterway area of the estuary is about 2.7 hectares with a catchment approximately 270 hectares.  Riparian vegetation along the estuary includes coastal dune species, saltmarsh, mangroves, Casuarina, and Melaleuca swamp forest.
