Work will resume next week on the major upgrade to the Minyon Falls visitor precinct as part of the largest ever investment into National Park visitor infrastructure. This is the first stage of the $7.35 million Tweed Byron Hinterland Trails Project, which will deliver high quality nature-based visitor experiences to boost the NSW visitor economy and community wellbeing. Work was completed in December last year to increase parking capacity from 37 to 93 spaces which was well-received over the busy summer period.

Minyon Falls and Minyon Grass will be closing from 1 March to enable the construction of a new lookout and day use area at Minyon Falls. The site is not expected to reopen until the end of June. Rummery Park campground will remain open*, accessible via Nightcap Range Road.

The Minyon Falls master plan revised design will deliver an exceptional nature-based visitor experience while minimising impact on the natural setting. The upgrade will improve the sense of arrival, access pathways and family gathering spaces at Minyon Falls, including a new viewing platform, picnic tables and an educational space. The new design will supply opportunities for a diverse range of visitors to understand, enjoy and appreciate parks, and take maximum advantage of the site’s interpretive opportunities and scenic values.

Minyon Falls will be closed from 1 March to end June 2021.

Minyon Falls Drive will be closed at Minyon Grass picnic area. See the attached flyer for details.
