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 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.
