Mayor of Tweed Chris Cherry

From preparing for dark tunnels to how to identify your location, a raft of safety tips and handy hints on how to use the new Northern Rivers Rail Trail are published to help users make the most of their experience.

The 24 km Tweed section of the Rail Trail is a new shared recreation and nature trail where users can walk, ride and explore the region between Murwillumbah and Crabbes Creek at their own pace.

Council’s Manager Destination, Communication and Customer Experience Tiffany Stodart said the new attraction had been enthusiastically embraced by everyone from walkers to runners, cyclists, and people of all abilities since its official opening on 1 March.

“It’s been incredible to see the abundance of people enjoying the Rail Trail in its first week,” Ms Stodart said.

“With many people flocking to be among the first to experience this new shared space, it has also been an important reminder about the importance of safety and individual responsibility on the Rail Trail.

“Users need to follow the safety tips and rules – clearly identified in signage on the Rail Trail and through the official website and social media channels – so everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience.”

The Northern Rivers Rail Trail website highlights the shared nature of the trail, which adjoins local farmland, and encourages visitors to be aware and plan for potential risks.
