Our Region

Small Towns Big Adventures!

Welcome to the Beef Capital of Australia, Casino. Situated in the Richmond Valley, the region offers you a package deal with a country-to-coast experience rolled into a program full of events and activities at Casino Beef Week and throughout the year.

Located in Northern NSW, with access to two international airports in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the Richmond Valley is perfectly located for your next authentic rural escape.

If you’re escaping the city grind or looking to venture off the highway for a traveller’s weekend rest, Casino has you covered for a country experience.

The Richmond Valley is home to more than 23,000 people with the beef industry being a major contributor to the Northern Rivers economy for over 100 years.

The Australian red meat industry contributes more than $378 million to the local economy and $948 million to the Northern Rivers. With smaller locally owned farms making up the majority of the district, it is the perfect place for visitors to spend a day on the land, experience the authentic country life and connect with locals.

The Richmond Valley is growing in popularity both as a tourism destination and hub for trade and business both nationally and internationally.

So whether it’s a drive down picturesque country roads, a day at the beach and World Heritage-listed national parks, attending corporate seminars or events, we hope your experience will be memorable and will encourage you to come back and visit us again.
