The Northern Rivers Rail Trail will provide habitat and a wildlife corridor that reconnects an assortment of forest remnants. The trail will be able to deliver interpretative displays of most of the types of ecosystems to be found in the region and will be able to showcase the biodiversity for which the Northern Rivers is famous.  With long sweeping vistas in both directions, spotting animals or watching for birds will be one of the signature experiences for trail users.  Iconic Australian wildlife including Koalas and Wallabies (in the wild) will be a key tourism drawcard.
