On Saturday 25 March and Sunday 26 March, the Northern Rivers Rail Trail will come alive with activities and events along the 24 km Tweed stretch.

Celebrate the rich history and cultural influences of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, as you experience the new Rail Trail itself and the beauty of the surrounding regions around. There is so much to see and do.

Dive into the past at the Murwillumbah Railway Station site and visit the Museum on Wheels (MoW) who has curated an exhibition of historic photographs of the former North Coast Line dating back to the early 1900’s. Kids can embark on their Rail Trail journey with a specially designed Scavenger Hunt and uncover hidden stories too.

Cycling Without Age will also be at Murwillumbah Station providing people with reduced mobility to enjoy the freedom of cycling with their popular trishaw rides powered by volunteers (10:30 am – 3:30 pm).

The station itself will be lively, and activations will be dispersed across the 24 km section including an exciting new addition for the Tweed Regional Art Gallery. Rail Trail users will be able to access a free self-guided sound immersion at the Gallery connection point where they can listen to the work of local poet Tais Rose Wae, inviting people to slow down and engage in meditative deep listening to the land.

Other activations throughout the weekend will support the community to experience new things and learn about surrounding flora, fauna, and aboriginal cultural stories.

Each of the historical Station nodes will feature musicians playing throughout the weekend including sounds from Luke Bennett, Kayel, Jerome Williams, Gabrielle Lamb and James Alexander.
