Northern Rivers Rail Trail

Opening in 2023!

Winding through some of the most spectacular countryside in Australia, the Northern Rivers Rail Trail will transform the scenic rail corridor into the region’s newest must-do experience for visitors and locals.

The trail is a new walking and cycling path connecting the Tweed Valley with Byron Shire, Lismore and Casino, with the first 24km leg from Murwillumbah to Crabbes Creek due to open in 2023. To be delivered in four stages, the 132km trail is expected to draw thousands of visitors each year to explore and discover the natural beauty of the Northern Rivers - on foot and by bike.

Lismore has secured funding for the 16.3km South Lismore to Bentley section and work is underway to secure funds for the 15.5km between Eltham and South Lismore. In Richmond Valley, the 13.4km between Casino and Bentley is fully funded and due to open in 2023.
