Northern Rivers - New South Wales

The Northern Rivers of NSW was the birthplace of Australia's environmental crusade, extending from Grafton up to the Queensland border at Tweed Heads.

Reconnect with Mother Nature and tread the spectacular World Heritage-listed rainforests, secure in their home of National Parks. Experience these natural wonders for yourself with picnics, camping and bushwalking in an idyllic setting as you appreciate the work of protestors from the early days up until today, to preserve our diverse and unspoilt environment. These include Nightcap National Park, the Iluka Nature reserve, the Border Ranges and the remnants of the Mt Warning Volcano.

Your quest for the perfect beach will be over in a matter of time, with 300 kilometres of crystal clear beaches. The Northern Rivers is well known for its New Age surf culture and laid back characters with many unspoilt seaside hideaways, launching the Australian surfing legend.

Lush countryside with quaint towns from scottish Maclean to the psychedelic, grass roots living of Nimbin. Immersed in these vibrant towns is a unique assembly of communities that genuinely care about our environment from artists to entrepreneurs and academic to entertainers.

Whether you laze like seals in the sun on a beautiful beach or eat your way around the breathtaking countryside, one thing is for sure, you will want to return.
