Murwillumbah Things to Do: 13 reviews and 27 photos
As I noted in my introduction page, this country town (population about 8,000) is the administrative centre for the district. Life in the area revolves around agriculture and the town is there to provide the necessary support services, although there are plenty of cafes, motels and other services to meet your needs. Ecotourism is becoming increasingly important, not surprising given the area! It’s pretty quiet after lunchtime closing on a Saturday though, because most businesses close so that people can enjoy their weekends. This photo, looking down Main St from near the Museum toward Wharf St, gives the general idea. Quite honestly, if it’s the bright lights you’re seeking, you’d be better off heading for one of those coastal developments I mentioned.
Back in 1907 a major fire destroyed much of the town, leading to extensive rebuilding. That is why many public buildings are in Federation style architecture – the Museum (next tip) is an example. Should you have the time, a look around the town is worthwhile.
