UPDATE ON NORTHERN RIVERS RAIL TRAIL – FEB 2020

MASSIVE FLOODING IN NSW SHOWS US WHY TRAILS ARE BETTER TO BUILT ON FORMATION

Many areas of NSW have been under siege by fires and now floods. Our thoughts and best wishes are with those who have been devastated by these extreme conditions. 

Businesses and tourism have been compromised and it is important at this time, more than ever to encourage the development of products that will attract visitors into regional NSW. Our Northern Rivers Rail Trail is the perfect project!
