Border Ranges National Park

Border Rangers National Park

Border Ranges National Park, is a World Heritage listed rainforest on the rim of a vast and ancient volcano which adjoins Lamington National Park in QLD. Border Ranges National Park offers spectacular views, waterfalls, sparkling creeks, pristine rainforest, rugged ridges and steep escarpments. More than three-quarters of the park is managed as wilderness.

The Tweed Range Scenic Drive is a 44km all weather gravel road crossing the eastern plateau of the Border Ranges National Park. Much of the drive follows the caldera edge of the eroded Mount Warning volcano, providing incomparable views. The drive through the Border Ranges National Park can be completed in 4-5 hours, allowing for a leisurely pace with stops to enjoy views, strolls in the rainforest and picnic breaks.
 
Due to the steep roads, caravans and buses must be left at Sheepstation Creek Rest Area in the Border Ranges National Park and cannot enter the park via the Murwillumbah Road entrance.
 
Sheepstation Creek Rest Area is a popular camping spot suitable for families or larger groups. From here a walking track network explores the nearby rainforest and creeks.

 

Selva Falls

Forest Tops Rest Area is another smaller camping area set in a grassy forest clearing. 

Brindle Creek Picnic Area in the Border Ranges National Park provides picnic facilities in the rainforest beside the beautiful Brindle Creek. There are no BBQs here.

Antarctic Beech Picnic Area has a northern outlook over Grady's Creek and the NSW/QLD border to the rainforest clad ridges of Lamington Plateau. This is a beautiful spot on a sunny day.

Tweed Valley Lookout in the Border Ranges National Park is a spectacular viewpoint along the Scenic Drive.
 
The Pinnacle Lookout also in the Border Ranges National Park is reached by a short walk. The view from this lofty peak is breathtaking. Help to protect rare plants by staying on the track and not proceeding beyond the lookout platform.
 
Blackbutts Picnic Area on the Tweed Scenic Road in the  Border Ranges National Park provides another impressive outlook over the caldera and views of Mount Warning.
 
Bar Mountain Picnic Area is situated high on the caldera rim in the misty realm of ancient Antarctic Beech forest and is the last viewing spot along the rim from the north of the Border Ranges National Park.
Park Fees

 

Visitors to Border Ranges National Park need to pay a fee for day-use, and an extra fee if using the camping areas. These fees are used locally to help protect each park and maintain its facilities. Regular visitors to parks where day-use fees apply can save time and money by purchasing an annual pass.

Camping fees apply in the Border Ranges National Park at Sheepstation Creek and Forest Tops rest areas. This is a self-registration system and sites cannot be pre-booked. Campers are advised to pack a gas or fuel stove as moist conditions often make the firewood damp and difficult to light.
