Stokers Siding

Stokers Siding Hall


Stokers Siding in the Tweed Valley is a picturesque, quiet little village set amongst rolling green pastures and sub tropical rainforest, a short drive from Uki and Mt Warning/ Wollumbin, north of Byron Bay and south of Murwillumbah.

It was first settled in 1882 when Joseph Stoker bought 600 acres at 2 shillings an acre. It was to be used as farming land. First sugar cane was tried then later they moved to dairy cows and bananas. The Murwillumbah to Lismore rail opened in 1894. It was the meeting of the roads and the train line that gave birth to Stokers Siding.
