Northern Rivers Rail TrailSupporters believe that once the Northern Rivers Rail Trail is up finally, the region will witness immense financial profit from it.

They are quite optimist that the said project will add to the community and eventually become one of the greatest attractions.

As per the figures of the industry experts, countries like Scotland, Canada, New Zealand, the US and different parts of Australia with regional rail trails have shown positive increase in economy.

For nature-based tourism, trails play an integral role as it supports the visitors to stop, stay and spend and the Northern Rail Trail on this context expects to get involved with the success story.

Formerly Deputy Premier John Barilaro had explained that growing rural tourism and regional NSW have always been top priorities for the government. To quote Barilaro, “The NSW Government has invested record funding to turbocharge rural and regional tourism and drive visitation beyond the fringes of Sydney to places like the North Coast. The positive flow-on effects from this tourism asset would be felt right across our regions with more heads on beds, and more tourist dollars ending up in the pockets of local businesspeople.”

To quote Judy Dixon, Mansfield Shire’s Tourism and Economic Development Team Leader, “We have a three pronged approach with recreational cycling, road cycling and mountain biking. The Great Victorian Rail Trail which is Australia’s longest, provides wonderful recreational riding along safe trails through some spectacular countryside and the road touring cycle loops around Mansfield are well utilised by the local cycle club and the climb up Mt Buller inspires cyclists from all over to test themselves”.
