Explore the former Casino-to-Murwillumbah rail corridor as a new and exciting recreation and nature trail

Traversing some of the most spectacular countryside in Australia, the Northern Rivers Rail Trail winds its way through scenic villages and towns, rail tunnels and historic bridges. Visitors of all ages and abilities are free to explore and discover the natural beauty of the region.

The 132km trail will connect Murwillumbah, before tracking south through the Tweed Valley to Crabbes Creek, through Byron Shire to Eltham, and on through Lismore and Bentley, finishing at Casino.

This extensive Rail Trail network showcases the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the Northern Rivers region, promoting health and well-being and eco-tourism.

The completed Tweed section preserves the area’s railway heritage, starting at the heritage-listed Murwillumbah Railway Station,  then passing over 18 railway bridges and through two railway tunnels.

This section is surfaced with asphalt from the Murwillumbah Railway Station to the Tweed Regional Art Gallery & Margaret Olley Centre, and between Burringbar and Mooball stations. As it passes through the countryside, the remaining surface is compacted gravel.
