Murwillumbah Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 83 photos


Murwillumbah is located in the centre of the beautiful Tweed Valley, just 15 minutes from the Tweed Coast, 30 minutes south of the Gold Coast and 40 minutes north of Byron Bay.

From Murwillumbah, you can view the interesting shape of Mt.Warning and see other mountains in one of the five World Heritage National Parks that surround the town.

The countryside around Murwillumbah is some of the prettiest you will find in Australia.

Sugar cane grows on the flats where the Tweed River gently flows towards the ocean. Banana plantations are seen growing up the steep hills where some small villages are wonderful views are worth coming to, to see.

Murwillumbah has quite a lot of Art Deco architecture, parks and gardens, Markets, Restaurants and a good shopping centre.

It is a perfect base from which to explore nearby Mount Warning and Nightcap National Park, both are pretty and worth doing.
