  • Hidden gems: Venture off the beaten path and discover the lesser-known gems which make the Richmond Valley truly unique. From charming local cafes to secluded hiking trails, there’s always something new to explore.
  • Insider recommendations: Benefit from insider recommendations from locals who know the ins and outs of the Valley’s best-kept secrets.

In line with other North Coast local government areas, the Richmond Valley visitor economy has been growing incrementally over the past five years. Tourism is estimated to contribute $78 million direct visitor expenditure to the Richmond Valley visitor economy per year. Domestic daytrips account for 59 percent of visitors to the region, and domestic overnight visitors account for 40 percent of visitors.

Increasing direct visitor expenditure and overnight visitation is, therefore, important to growing the area’s visitor economy.

Richmond Valley Council’s Director Community Service Delivery Angela Jones said the visitor guide was a “must have” for visitors.

“Our goal with the new Discover Richmond Valley Visitor Guide is to provide visitors with an authentic experience which goes beyond the traditional tourist trail,” Ms Jones said.

“We want visitors to feel like locals, uncovering the hidden gems and secret spots which make our beautiful Valley so special.”
