Be inspired along the Rainforest Way drive
Explore the scenic wonders of the lush, World Heritage-listed rainforests of northern NSW on this meandering drive. You can depart from Murwilllumbah, Lismore, Casino or Kyogle, following short, half-day loops between 80 and 95 kms.
To make the most of your journey along the Rainforest Way, drop into the Murwillumbah World Heritage Rainforest Centre to learn about the rare wildlife and botanic splendours of the region.
You'll see some amazing sights along the way. The dramatic spike of Mt Warning, an ancient plug of solidified lava, towers dramatically above the drive and the meandering Tweed River. Waterfalls hidden by shady canopy are best explored on foot - Minyon Falls in Nightcap National Park and Protesters Falls on Terania Creek are beautiful. Stop off at quirky local villages such as Nimbin (Australia's counter-culture capital), historic Tyalgum or Channon for the monthly markets.
See rare and endangered native animals at remote wilderness refuges, go canoeing, birdwatching and bushwalking.
