Nature in Murwillumbah
Murwillumbah is rich dairy, sugar cane and banana country. It's located on the banks of the Tweed River and set in the Tweed River Valley against a backdrop of rainforest-clad hills.
Murwillumbah is a bustling regional centre, a perfect base from which to explore nearby Mount Warning and Nightcap National Park. In fact there is an information centre in the town dedicated to explaining the mysteries of the sub-tropical rainforests of the region.
Set on the Tweed River, there are shady parks for picnics, fishing and boating and an excellent golf course. Be sure to explore the World Heritage Rainforest Centre, which documents the wildlife and botanical splendours of the region's national parks.
As well as having many fine old buildings, Murwillumbah is home to the Tweed River Regional Art Gallery. The richest portrait competition in the world is held here each year.
