Crystal Castle is committed to local involvement that enhances the community and the lives of others. In partnership with Rainforest Rescue, over 5000 trees have been planted since mid 2006.
The 1 kilometre walk has been completely planted by members of the community and is aimed at restoring the indigenous plants and wildlife of this area. Be at one with nature and enjoy abundant birdlife, water sculpted feature rocks and rare species of wildlife. 'Don't forget to look up, you may see a koala!'
Not for profit organisation Rainforest Rescue has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998 by providing opportunities for individuals and businesses to Protect Rainforests Forever. On the grounds of Crystal Castle, Rainforest Rescue is helping to re-establish The Big Scrub which was once the largest expanse of subtropical rainforest in Australia, extending over 75,000 hectares between Byron Bay, Ballina and Lismore. The Big Scrub is the most diverse ecosystem in New South Wales supporting 28 threatened species of flora and 22 species of fauna. With only 1% of the Big Scrub remaining, planting rainforest to restore the Big Scrub is vital for their survival.
