Nature in Kyogle
Set on the Richmond River at the base of Fairy Mountain, Kyogle is surrounded by spectacular natural beauty, including farmlands and World Heritage-listed rainforest areas. Visit Toonumbar National Park and discover areas rich in Aboriginal history, wildlife, scenic views, as well as an ancient volcano.
Kyogle declares itself Gateway to the Rainforests, and indeed the town is surrounded by many natural heritage areas, scenic drives, lookouts, picnic areas and atmospheric villages.
Two spectacular national parks in the region, Border Ranges National Park and Mount Warning, are known for their stunning mountain scenery and rainforests. Be sure to drive the Lions Road Scenic Drive, a short and scenic route over the McPherson Ranges; explore the Kyogle Botanical Gardens on the banks of Fawcetts Creek and follow scenic touring routes to explore the national parks, rainforests, rivers and heritage towns of the surrounding area.
