Northern Rivers Rail Trail

Discover the newest must-do activity in the Richmond Valley. The Casino to Bentley section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail spans 13.4km and has been carefully crafted to ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey for all trail-goers. It also includes a brand-new bridle pathway for all equestrian enthusiasts.

Starting at the heritage-listed Old Casino Station, the Rail Trail connects with the Spring Grove Road and Naughtons Gap Road car parks, where toilets, water and bike repair facilities are available, as well as ample parking and horse float access. It meanders through rich grazing lands and passes over the Naughtons Gap Tunnel that is home to a mixed colony of vulnerable Bent-winged microbats. Don’t forget to enjoy the stunning panoramic vistas from the top! Finishing at the historic Back Creek Bridge at Bentley, the Richmond Valley section will soon connect with the Lismore section which will be completed at the end of 2024.

The Northern Rivers Rail Trail is a world-class recreational experience that will connect Casino with Lismore and the Byron Shire in the future, and the Tweed region which is already open and ready to enjoy. Embark on the ultimate Northern Rivers adventure and immerse yourself in our vibrant communities and explore the flavours and culture of the region.
