The Far North Coast of New South Wales is a region offering much for the
visitor, that include sub-tropical countryside, rainforests, rich pastoral
regions, rivers and sweeping coastline with great beaches. The most famous towns
are the ever popular Bryon Bay and Nimbin, the unofficial capital of alternative
lifestyle. Of course there are the quiet villages, for those seeking a little
peaceful relaxation, whilst exploring the national parks and hinterland.
Also known as the Northern Rivers,
the region borders onto Queensland, encompassing Ballina Shire, Byron Shire, Grafton City, Copmanshurst Shire and Pristine Waters Shire, Kyogle Shire, Lismore City
Council, Maclean Shire, Richmond Valley Council and Tweed Shire. With the three
largest cities of Grafton, Lismore and Tweed Heads, the region includes many
other popular towns and villages.
