Murwillumbah (including Chillingham, Tumbulgum and Uki)
Important rural centre on the Tweed River just south of the Queensland border.
Murwillumbah is the last major town (apart from the urban sprawl of Tweed Heads) before the Queensland border. It is a substantial centre which is focussed almost entirely on providing services for the surrounding farmlands. The area is particularly rich and consequently is a mixture of cattle and sugar cane.
Murwillumbah is a rather pleasant town of around 9000 people which spreads along the banks of the Tweed River by the foothills of the McPherson Ranges. It is located in a scenic area 848 km north-east of Sydney, 13 km south of the Queensland border and 132 km south of Brisbane. In recent times the Pacific Highway, which joins Sydney and Brisbane, has bypassed the town and consequently it has become rather more sedate.
