Long before the existing of proper sealed road, Kuala Berang was once playing a very important role in Terengganu due to the river which was the only means of communication till the river traffic has diminished with the construction of road connecting most part of the state. Perhaps partly due to the function played by the river too, the Terengganu's famous Inscribed Stone (Batu Bersurat) was stumbled upon in 1887 at Padang Tara, a village on the bank of Sungai Tara in Kuala Berang.  This inscribed stone was later moved to Bukit Puteri in Kuala Terengganu then later into Losong Museum. Even so, Kuala Berang remains its simple life style and culture. This makes Kuala Berang an anthropology studies area for Islamic researchers.

Other than the being one of the access point to Kenyir Lake in the interior, another attraction associated with the river is the Sekayu waterfall near Kuala Berang. Although tourism has brought this typical farming village into well known, Kuala Berang remains in its simple life style which has been inherited from generations.
