If you love beaches, festivals, delicious local produce and breathtaking hinterland, you’ll love the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Stretching from Tweed Heads in the north to Grafton in the south, the Northern Rivers will inspire and amaze even the most discerning traveller.
Byron Bay, once a sleepy industrial town, is now an internationally renowned tourist destination, drawing in millions of visitors from all over the world every year. While it’s easy to get lost in the amazing scenery, world-class beaches and friendly vibes of Byron Bay, there is a whole coastline to explore, and it’s worth branching out to see what else this incredible region has to offer. Snorkel with turtles on Cook Island, explore the waterways of the Tweed Valley, visit the colourful town of Nimbin, or make a pit stop in vibrant Lismore – the options are endless!
There are many ways to see the sights of the Northern Rivers. Whether you choose to hire a houseboat, take up residence in a seaside resort or camp in a national park, you’ll never be far from fun and adventure. Getting there is easy too with airports in Byron Bay, Lismore and Grafton, a train line running between Sydney and Brisbane and road access for those who love to take to the open road.
