Border Ranges National Park
World Heritage-listed Border Ranges National Park near Murwillumbah, offers walking, cycling, drive touring, school excursion options, camping and scenic views that will take your breath away.
Border Ranges National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area is a large area of wilderness that protects untouched rainforest and unique plants and animals connected to the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
There are countless opportunities to explore the abundant wonders of the rainforest hidden throughout this rare haven. You can travel around Border Ranges National Park along the Tweed Range Scenic Drive touring route (part of the Rainforest Way). Try the short Palm Valley loop walk through subtropical rainforest or take the more difficult Booyong walk that leaves from Sheepstation Creek campground. You’re bound to find a beautiful spot for a picnic or barbecue lunch and be sure to stop off at some of the park’s lookouts along the way. Photographers will love capturing billowing waterfalls, views of Wollumbin-Mount Warning and lush rainforest plants.
The park is easily accessible from Kyogle and Lismore; however if you’d prefer to sleep under a blanket of stars and be woken by birds, head to one of the park’s campgrounds.
