Northern Rivers Rail Trail increases business operators
Posted on 21/12/23
In a continuing example of the success of the Tweed section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, Tweed Shire Council has awarded licences to operate three commercial shop front spaces at the historical Murwillumbah Railway Station, at the head of the rail trail.
Shire councillors unanimously supported a recommendation to award the licenses following a robust and competitive expression of interest and open tender process. Three licences were awarded to two bike hire and tour operators and a cafe outlet.
The current lessee Murwillumbah Cycles has moved its operations to its other shop at Mooball and will continue to offer sales, repairs and bike hire from this shop. As with most bicycle hire businesses, customers are encouraged to book online as customers will still be able to pick up bicycles at both ends of the rail trail through the offering of a complete delivery and pickup service.
Rail Trails Australia wishes the new and existing businesses all the best for the future as they encourage further use of rail trails.
