Called the Gateway to the Rainforests, Kyogle is by the meandering Richmond River at the base of Fairy Mountain in the Lismore region. From here you can explore nearby World Heritage-listed national parks, spectacular lookouts, picnic areas and scenic drives to beautiful villages. 

One of those villages is Tabulam, the birthplace of General Sir Henry ‘Harry’ Chauvel, who commanded the 1st Light Horse Brigade in the First World War. The Kyogle Visitor Information Centre has details of the half-day Tabulam Scenic Drive. Another enchanting route is Touch the Country Drive.

Mount Lindesay - Lismore Area

In the hinterland of the far North Coast of NSW, Kyogle is surrounded by rich farmlands. You can buy local produce at Gateway Fine Foods, a cafe and deli. Places to stay in the area range from luxury cabins and holiday cottages to self-contained cabins, caravan parks and campgrounds.

Enjoy leisurely drives to magnificent national parks that are part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area - Toonumbar, Border Ranges, Wollumbin and Nightcap. Explore the exhilarating walking trails and discover the array of colourful birds and other native wildlife.

A popular spot for fishing and boating is Toonumbar Dam, 40 minutes’ drive west of Kyogle. Northwest of Kyogle is Woodenbong, where you’ll enjoy browsing Country Brushstokes for local handmade arts and crafts or playing nine holes at Woodenbong and District Golf Club.
