Connect With nature

Immerse yourself in this living cultural landscape, wander through the mists of time in one of Australia’s oldest volcanic regions near the iconic Wollumbin (Mt Warning).

Get your artist on and explore the numerous art galleries, exhibitions and more.

Connect with the locals and join a festival — from the famous Tropical Fruits Festival in Lismore to the Jacaranda Festival in Grafton, the calendar is full of events that just can’t be missed.

Our world-famous beaches are a natural drawcard. Many visitors head to Byron Bay and Lennox Head to test out their surfing chops, but there is a whole coastline to explore.

And the secret is now out, the region is being discovered by bush walkers and trekkers from around the world. Explore the natural wonders at every turn along our hinterland walking tracks.
