Tweed-Byron Hinterland Trails Masterplan

Proposed short, medium and multi-day trails and visitor hubs in Wollumbin, Nightcap and Mount Jerusalem National Parks.

NewScape were commisioned by NPWS to develop the Tweed-Byron Hinterland Trails Masterplan report. This includes the design of a 50km multi-day trail linked with shorter walking loops as well as detailed Precinct designs of campgrounds and day-use facilities in Wollumbin, Mount Jerusalem and Nightcap National Parks. This also comprises of upgrades of existing facilities such as the Minyon Falls Precinct. The project required extensive consultation with National Park rangers and community groups and a 5-day site visit. An optimal track route was achieved that maximises hiker experience, caters for an array of abilities and user types, is low maintenance and reduces impact on the relatively untouched nature of the National Parks. The track links together with visitor hubs to form an extensive network of tourism opportunities in the Tweed-Byron Hinterland region.
