The Northern Rivers Rail Trail stretches through an enchanting region of New South Wales, Australia.

The trail takes you through the heart of the Tweed Valley, known for its stunning landscapes, making it a must-visit destination for nature lovers.
The Tweed section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail features 26 bridges and 2 tunnels. Of the 26 bridges, you will cross 16 of them which are a mix of new timber bridges and new modular bridges.
The 2 tunnels are Burringbar Range Tunnel (500 m) and Hulls Road Tunnel (50 m). Burringbar Range Tunnel is one of NSW’s longest train tunnels coming in at 500 m. Unlike many rail tunnels in Australia, it is long enough to provide suitable darkness for microbats to roost in. The tunnel also provides an excellent dark moist habitat for glow worms to thrive.
