Border Ranges National Park

Friday 14 August 2015

Another fine sunny day with a temperature range of 12 to 22 degrees.

We did the tourist thing again and drove the Tweed Range Scenic Drive in the Border Ranges National Park. The drive took us along the rim of an ancient volcanic caldera, through Heritage listed rain forests, Antarctic beech forests over 2,000 years old, and spectacular lookouts with views across the Tweed Valley and Mount Warning. The round trip from Tallebudgera Creek was a total of 280 km via Murwillumbah, Uki and Kyogle. The Border Ranges Circuit itself 56 km of reasonable gravel roads, albeit a bit narrow and winding in places.
