Murwillumbah

Murwillumbah

The first people to live in the area were Bundjalung people. The name Murwillumbah derives from an Aboriginal word meaning "camping place" – from Murrie, meaning "aboriginal people", Wolli, "a camp"; and Bab, "the place of". Nearby Mount Warning and its attendant national park are known as Wollumbin, meaning "Cloud Catcher", in the Bundjalung language.

Together with surrounding villages, including Uki, Tyalgum, Chillingham and Tweed Coast, Murwillumbah serves a resident population in excess of 17,000 people with a total catchment approaching 40,000.

Murwillumbah is the gateway to one third of Australia's World Heritage listed national parks and rainforests and is home to the World Heritage Rainforest Centre - a visitor information centre and home to an office of the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

The location, climate and relaxed lifestyle are seen as qualities much sought after by people who appreciate the ambience of the Valley and its relaxed and charming lifestyle.
