Ten years ago the railway line from Murwillumbah to Casino was closed. One year ago a committee was formed to resurrect the beautiful corridor for a rail trail, something that everyone can use. Dozens of such conversions throughout Australia have already proven to be very beneficial to their host communities.
The Northern Rivers Rail Trail Committee has been working very hard over the past year resulting in many achievements – the latest being a very strong presence at the launch of ‘Rail Trails for NSW’ at Parliament House in Sydney last month.
So we’re celebrating our anniversary with a fundraising event. It will be a great opportunity to acknowledge all of our long term supporters and put faces to the names! We are encouraging everyone to organise a table of 8 or 10 with friends and family and really make this a night to remember!”
The Fundraising Party for the Northern Rivers Rail Trail will be held at the Byron Entertainment Centre/Circus Arts on 24th May from 6.30pm.This major event will include a fantastic meal, live music from Tim Shanasy and Sarah Field, DJ Manie, pop up circus acts, a slide and film show, guest speakers from NRRT and fabulous prizes to be won! Please book by 16th May or asap.
Tickets are $55 each. Book your ticket or table at www.circusarts.com.au/byronbay/railtrail/
