An easy day trip from Murwillumbah, this 30,000 hectare National Park takes in the NSW/Queensland border and
is 85 km from east to west. The park is divided into three sections: Tweed
Range, central and western. The central section is accessed from Kyogle
and can be used as a scenic route to Brisbane via Rathdowney and the wild
western section is advisable only for well-prepared intrepid visitors, but
the eastern Tweed Range section offers the easiest access and the most
Some steep grades are NOT
suitable for caravans or buses, and drivers must take care in wet weather.
The three or four day
caldera rim walk is only for dedicated, fit and properly equipped walkers
and covers a wide variety of tracks.
Family outings and tours
for relaxation would be better served by taking the Tweed Range Scenic
Drive, 64 km from park entry to exit, which has picnic and overnight
camping areas in the most scenic spots.
A comfortable drive will
take between four and five hours, taking frequent stops for picnics, to
enjoy the breathtaking views or to take short walks, but the best way to
take advantage of all this national treasure has to offer is to take it
slowly, take longer walks along the tracks and longer breaks.
