Route Numbering:

General Information:

National Route 13 forms part of what was once a major route between northern New South Wales and south eastern Queensland.

The highway used to extend to Tenterfield but that section of the road, which included some unpaved portions, was decommissioned as a highway by the New South Wales Government.

The route passes suburban and rural areas at the northern end and to the south it passes through rural areas and mountainous terrain, linking the Gold Coast hinterland with the Richmond and Clarence Valleys in New South Wales. The route was once part of the main inland road route between Sydney and Brisbane. Used together with Summerland Way (SR91) on the NSW side of the border, the route is promoted as an alternative to the Pacific Highway.

The Mount Lindesay Highway section is named after Mount Lindesay, the residue of a solidified magma core, that is part of the Mount Warning volcanic area and is situated in the western extreme of Border Ranges National Park.

Multiplexes along the route include:
