From the moment you arrive in Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley you realise this is a special place. In a landscape where the ocean shores rise to the verdant ranges and the worlds largest expanse of sub tropical rainforest, the natural beauty of this region is breathtaking. The whole Tweed Valley was formed by an extinct volcano leaving behind a caldera. Right in the very centre of this timeless landscape sits Wollumbin (Mt Warning), the vent of this ancient volcano. Wollumbin stands like a sentry over the region and is a defining landmark that can be viewed from almost every location in the Tweed. Interestingly, the first rays of morning light on the Australian mainland are cast on the peak of Wollumbin, and as you may expect, this towering peak at almost 1200 metres is held with due reverence by the Bundjalung Indigenous people.
This cycle journey combines the timeless majesty of the Tweed Valley and Tweed Coast with Wollumbin and sections of the new and much acclaimed Northern Rivers Rail Trail. Beginning with a full circuit around Wollumbin, cycle along rural roads with sweeping landscapes and the dramatic backdrop of ranges that border the valley, then forest trails through the rainforest of National Parks, to follow rivers and creeks as you loop back to Murwillumbah. The second part of this cycle journey heads out along the Northern Rivers Rail Trail before turning east to the Tweed Coast and the sparkling beaches and coastline for which this region is renowned where you'll spend the night in premium accommodation by the beach. The last stage takes you back into Murwillumbah through the red soil farmlands of the Cudgen Plateau and the floodplains of the Tweed River which still supports significant cane farming operations.
This is an e-bike cycle journey with breadth and depth from rainforest to superb beaches, dramatic landscapes carved in ancient times as well as a contemporary and colourful community that seems to thrive surrounded by nature's best. During this journey you will be supported with e-bike rental and luggage transfers between towns, giving you the freedom to cycle at a relaxed pace and take in the ever-changing landscape.
