Take the Rainforest Way north from Lismore to Border Ranges National Park. It’s an easy drive to this rainforest landscape full of cascading waterfalls, abundant wildlife and rare flora.
Located near the NSW/QLD border, Border Ranges National Park is just 40km outside Murwillumbah and 67km from Lismore.
One of the best ways to reach the park is along the 44km Tweed Range Scenic Drive (part of the Rainforest Way). It’s an easy drive along the all-weather gravel road, which crosses the eastern plateau of the park and provides spectacular views of Wollumbin-Mount Warning. You can take as long as you like along this scenic drive – stop for a picnic at Antarctic Beech picnic area, with views over the Lost World wilderness or take a stroll along the Bar Mountain circuit or the Brindle Creek walk. Don’t miss the view from the rim of the great caldera at Pinnacle lookout. With so much to see and do, it might be an idea to camp overnight at one of the park’s campgrounds.
