The Northern Rivers is a region that stretches from Brisbane in Queensland to Sydney in New South Wales. The Pacific Highway is a popular route for coastal explorers and the long beaches provide world-class surfing.
The region is defined by the fertile valleys of the Clarence, Richmond and Tweed Rivers. The Border Ranges, Wollumbin, Mooball, Mount Jerusalem and Nightcap are some of the National Parks which can be found in Northern Rivers.
To the north of Northern Rivers is the border with Queensland. Tweed Heads can be found here, a city located on the magnificent Tweed River. In this area sits a shield volcano at Mount Warning, and National Parks that abound with sub-tropical fauna and flora.
To the south of the area is Lennox Head, where Seven Mile Beach stretches to Byron Bay. Beaches in the Northern Rivers have beautiful white sands and are popular with surfers, divers and snorkelers.
Near to Lennox Head, Ballina is situated on the mouth of the Richmond River. Its Naval and Maritime Museum has the largest collection of naval and merchant ships in the country. Kyogle is a rainforest on the banks of the Richmond River and is known for its spectacular natural beauty.
Experience a Heritage Water Tank
Unfortunately, Northern Rivers is increasingly likely to experience the effects of climate change, with less rainfall and more variable seasons. It will, therefore, be more important than ever that rainwater is preserved and stored for both domestic and industrial use.
A solution to your water collection and storage needs is a Heritage Water Tank gutter system. This system ensures that rainwater that falls from the roof of the tank is collected, resulting in up to 22% more water being collected. Since the gutter system collects run-off rainwater, it also prevents scouring around the base of the tank.
