Visitors to Murwillumbah will soon have better access to some of the Tweed Valley’s most vibrant tourism sites with the New South Wales Government providing nearly $900,000 to Tweed Shire Council.

Member for Lismore Thomas George announced Tweed Shire Council has received $887,000 from the Regional Growth - Environment & Tourism Fund for four important visitor initiatives.

“$600,000 will be spent on revitalising Knox Park which is a central part of Murwillumbah’s shopping district. The NSW Government is moving to address concerns raised by Tweed Shire Council over the need to improve the bus shelter and dated toilet facilities, making them as safe and inviting as possible for visitors.” Mr George said.

“This funding offers the opportunity to give Murwillumbah a further facelift and celebrate its unique history. The town prides itself on coming up with innovative ways to encourage visitors to interact with the local art scene and the NSW Government’s RGETF will encourage that further through the development of the Murwillumbah Arts Precinct App and Caldera Wall. The beauty of this funding is it allows projects to progress in stages, with no limit on how long a project can take to be completed,” Mr George said

“I would greatly encourage other organisations with plans for exciting environment and tourism infrastructure projects to continue following the RGETF process.”
