Take a break from touring the Tweed Range Scenic Drive and stop in at Border Loop area.
The circuit track leaves from Border Loop lookout and picnic area, taking you on a short walk through a canopy of World Heritage-listed rainforest. This forest supports a population of koalas, so make sure you look high into the canopy for a glimpse of an Australian icon. If you’re interested in finding out more about the ancient rainforest plants, be sure to check out the track-side signs as you walk.
When you come to the end of the track, spend some time taking in views of Gradys Creek valley and the historic Border Loop railway line that tunnels through the McPherson range from Border Loop lookout. It’s a great place for a barbecue or picnic lunch.
