The Border Ranges starts roughly 150 km south of Brisbane; located mostly in northern New South Wales with a small portion in Queensland.
The Border Ranges National Park is part of the Shield Volcano Group of the World Heritage Site Gondwana Rainforests of Australia inscribed in 1986 and added to the Australian National Heritage List in 2007.
The region, which includes the McPherson Range, Tweed Range, Lamington Plateau and Levers Plateau, were formed from the erosion of the Tweed Volcano over many years. A number of volcanic plugs remain in the Border Ranges National Park.Notable for extensive stands of Nothofagus moorei (Antarctic Beech), the park offers a 64 kilometre gravel road circuit through sub tropical, cool and warm temperate rainforest types. The area was extensively logged during the 20th century, providing timber to a number of nearby sawmills. The Lions Road and the Sydney-Brisbane rail corridor pass through the park at its narrow middle section and provide some of the best riding roads in the world!
