Border Ranges National Park
World Heritage listed Border Ranges National Park near Murwillumbah NSW (is part of the Gondwana Rainforests) offers scenic views that will take your breath away.
You can explore this rainforest on one of the many walking tracks, like the short Pinnacle walk that provides spectacular views of Wollumbin and the Tweed Valley 1km below.
Located on the western edge rim of the Mt Warning volcanic rim caldera, this spectacular National Park has the highest concentration of marsupial species and one of the highest levels of species diversity of bats, birds, reptiles and amphibians in Australia.
Numerous waterfalls are a feature of this park. Day use picnic areas, shelter sheds and BBQ’s and spectacular views are provided at Bar Mountain, Blackbutt Lookout and Antarctic Beech.
