A website revamp and 11 scenic drive routes through Far North NSW and SE Qld are set to enhance tourism access to our Gondwanan rainforest hinterland.
With the ancient volcanic caldera of Wollumbin (Mt Warning) National Park at its centre, the main drive of The Rainforest Way leads you through the heart of Australia’s Green Cauldron, linking the towns and villages of Casino, Kyogle, Rathdowney, Beaudesert, Gold Coast, Tamborine Mountain, Murwillumbah, Nimbin, Lismore and Byron Bay.
Newly appointed Chair of the Australia’s Green Cauldron Steering Committee Craig Jenkins said, “It is very exciting to be launching this new and improved cross-border drive tourism route, which showcases the best ways to explore the spectacular World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and National Parks in our hinterland”.
Mr Jenkins went on to say “The Rainforest Way is more than just a way to visit the rainforests. It is an ideal ‘way’ of experiencing the region’s way of life, of seeing and engaging in world class environments, local communities and savouring the locally grown and prepared foods.”
The Rainforest Way is an ideal alternate scenic route to the Pacific Highway or it can be a time-out to touch the earth, smell the rainforests and connect with something real.
