Scenic Drive Number 3
This half day drive on mainly sealed roads takes you through stunning examples of our rural lifestyle offering views of the Border Ranges NP as a breathtaking backdrop.There are many opportunities to view the Border Ranges National Park from the left hand side of the road. Other features start to appear as the road turns east offering spectacular view into Horseshoe Creek Valley. Look for Mount Warning (Wollumbin) , Mount Nardi, ( easily identified with its television owers) and Nimbin Rocks, steeped in Aboriginal legend. The roadside verge of Homeleigh Rd scenic loop provides a small and narrow window into the habitat of the koalas which are located by patient observation and sometimes luck. The road becomes Sargents Road and continues, traversing a ridge and offering beautiful views of the countryside on both sides of the road. Turn left when you arrive at Kyogle Road and continue to Cawongla, a delightful village tucked away in the rainforest and hub of the local area. Cawongla General Store is a great place to stop for refreshments, while exploring the surprisingly well-stocked art gallery with works by many local artists.
