Lions Road Tourist Drive

 

A classic Tourist Drive, the Lions Road is one of the most popular drives on the Australian East Coast.

This remarkable monument to community spirit and Aussie grit was designed, surveyed and constructed by volunteers from the Kyogle Lions Club and their cross border counterparts after government support for the project was refused.

Decades of hard work, overcoming obstacles ranging from the steep terrain to interested politicians led to the Lions Road as we know it today. This striking drive through the Border Ranges to Queensland’s Scenic Rim is a must for those in a car, motorcycle or even on a pushbike, although the narrow, winding nature of this drive makes it unsuitable for trucks motorhomes or towed vehicles like caravans or camper trailers.

Tourist Drive Number 8

UPDATE; OCTOBER 2020

Closed parks: Bandahngan Aboriginal Area at Tooloom Falls currently closed till JUNE 2021

Bandahngan Aboriginal Area at Tooloom Falls is currently closed to all visitors. The closure follows concerns raised by the Githabul Aboriginal Community about the site. The impacts of camping along with recent drought has killed many trees within the 2-hectare Aboriginal Area. The closure will allow NPWS to deal with the hazardous trees and work with the Githabul Community on planning for future develoment and uses of the area.

Other campground areas are available in Urbenville and Woodenbong villages, and at Koreelah and Richmond Range National Park. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Drive through the northern region of the Upper Clarence, an area noted for its cultural significance and complex natural environment. This is a half day circuit drive which can be accessed from the Mt Lindesay Highway. The total distance is approximately 64 km on sealed roads. Much of the complexity of the natural surrounds is due to activity associated with the Focal Peak Volcano, which was active some 23 million years ago. The eroded volcanic remains of Mt Lindesay, Dome Mountain, Edinburgh Castle and the North and South Obelisks dominate the landscape during the drive.

The Tooloom Falls (with a fall drop of 8 metres into a deep pool) is a significant viewing area along this drive. The word Tooloom is corrupted from the Gidabal word Dooloomi, meaning headlice, named to keep children away from the dangerous pool. Tooloom Falls is one of the most significant sites in Gidabal country and was delcared an Aboriginal Place in 1977 under the National Parks and Wildlife Act. Respect the site, admire the view and take photographs, but stay well back from the edge of the falls and keep away from the slippery rocks.

Tooloom National Park encompasses the Tooloom Scrub, which is listed as part of the World Heritage ‘Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves of Australia’.
Tooloom takes its name from the nearby local landmark of Tooloom Falls. The aboriginal word for Tooloom is ‘Dooloomi’, which means headlice and relates to the aboriginal story of the falls. Tooloom Falls, located south east of the village of Urbenville, is declared an aboriginal place and is worth a visit while you are in the area.

The park contains 3 980 hectares of forest including the Hewston’s Hill and Wallaby Creek catchments and part of the Koreelah Range.

There are 10 species of kangaroos and wallabies in the park, including the threatened long-nosed potoroo.
