About the Owners:
Numinbah Valley Adventure trails was established in 1987 -88 by David Lyons on his return from working in central and north west Queensland. Due to falling cattle prices and pending drought an alternative source of income was needed to maintain Yowgurrabah, a 2500 acre family owned cattle property in the Numinbah Valley. After much research, the decision was made to stay with what we knew and would complement and allow us to share the natural beauty that is Yowgurrabah. Since its inception, Numinbah trails has evolved to where it is today.
