The Richmond Valley LGA is the base of the Northern Rivers region of NSW; Tweed Heads, Byron Shire, Lismore Shire and Ballina Shire. The area is around three hours from Brisbane, less than an hour to Byron Bay and 30 minutes to Lismore. Richmond Valley and our surrounding areas are some of the most beautiful and desired in the country. Why wait in bumper-to-bumper traffic when you can drive past the gorgeous beaches, through rolling hills and fully embrace the benefits of regional living. Your "office" will range from beautiful coastal villages and country towns to vast fertile farm lands.
The region's community is welcoming and friendly, which is why it has become a popular location for sea and tree changers who have had enough of traffic jams, congestion and long work hours.
We are proud to have won multiple awards for our culture including: Outstanding Employer of the Year by NSW Northern Business Chamber, and Large Employer of the Year by Training NSW.
