Murwillumbah & Surrounding Areas
Murwillumbah (meaning "place of many possums") is the central town in the Tweed Shire on the far North East coast of New South Wales, Australia. It has long been recognised as the seat of local government and the major service provider to the many and varied rural industries, communities and attractions of the Tweed Shire.
Together with surrounding villages, including Uki, Tyalgum, Chillingham, Tumbulgum, Burringbar, Stokers Siding and others, Murwillumbah serves a resident population in excess of 15,000 people with a total catchment of nearly double this.
Murwillumbah offers business and investment opportunities in agri-business, agri-tourism, agri-forestry, industry and commerce. Each one of the villages also offers its own unique lifestyle and opportunities.
Murwillumbah is a picturesque town that spreads along the western bank of the Tweed River and up into the hills of the McPherson Ranges. Surrounded, as it is, by the rim of the world's largest extinct shield volcano and bordering the Tweed River, almost every street has magnificent mountain, river and valley views.
As well as being the gateway to five of Australia's World Heritage listed national parks, Murwillumbah is home to the World Heritage Rainforest Centre - a visitor information centre which also houses a National Parks and Wildlife Service office.
Murwillumbah is a place where the lifestyle is relaxed and informal, the people friendly and welcoming and a perfect place to stop for lunch on your tour of the region. You can choose from one of the many al fresco cafés and restaurants in town, or maybe you’d prefer to dine at one of the several pubs and clubs. Whichever you choose, your meal is bound to include fresh, local produce as well as a friendly chat on the best places to visit during your stay.
The location, climate and relaxed lifestyle are seen as qualities much sought after by tourists, investors and people who appreciate the ambiance of the Valley with its laidback lifestyle.
With clean air, plentiful supply of water, excellent educational facilities, mild climate, security, proximity to airports, major resorts and shopping centres as well as ready access to the cities of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Murwillumbah (and its surrounds) is truly The Jewel in the Crown of the Northern Rivers.
