A popular destination in the Tweed region of NSW, Murwillumbah’s hippy background makes it an attractive destination for those looking to chill out.
Pair Murwillumbah with a stay in Byron Bay and you have a perfect Australian coastal getaway.
This charming country town sits on the banks of the Tweed River in the crater of an extinct volcano. The land is fertile for farming and covered in rainforests.
A great time to visit the Tweed region is during the Tweedie Foodie Fest and Foodie Friday Food Trail. Any other time of the year, just pop into the Murwillumbah Farmers Market to sample produce from the region’s farms.
