About Murwillumbah

A delightful town, Murwillumbah is on the banks of the meandering Tweed River in the green caldera, the crater of a huge extinct volcano now carpeted with rich farmlands and enchanting rainforest. Volcanic soils support dairy, sugar cane, banana plantations and hobby farms.

The seasonal produce of the Tweed region is celebrated at the Tweedie Foodie Fest and Foodie Friday Food Trail. At the weekly Murwillumbah Farmers Market you can buy a range of fresh seasonal produce, including fruit, eggs, honey, nuts and meats. Places to stay in and around Murwillumbah include retreats, motels, a riverside youth hostel, and caravan and camping sites.

Clarrie Hall Dam, west of the nearby village of Uki, is popular for fishing and boating. The waterway is stocked with Australian bass. For golfers, the 18-hole championship course at Murwillumbah Golf Club is in a beautiful setting with the towering Mount Warning in the distance.
