Murwillumbah is a picturesque town situated on the Tweed River in far Northern NSW. The Tweed River and Tweed Valley are rated as one of Australias best rural landscapes with the imposing Mt Wollumbin (Mt Warning) visible from all parts of the valley. In the West and North lie a ring of escarpments known as the Tweed Caldera, the remains of the massive Tweed Volcano.
The Tweed Valley, once home to an incredibly diverse lowland rainforest flora and fauna has almost lost it all as a result of land clearing reducing the lowlands to grazing lands and the creek lines to camphor laurel and privet.
A central attraction in Murwillumbah is the 700 metre long " Treasures of The Tweed Mural" painted on the western side of the Tweed River flood mitigation wall. It features an impressive painted display of the rare and threatened flora and fauna of the Tweed Valley and is a must see if in the area.
I have a gallery of Images HERE if you cannot get to see it in person.
There is a group on Flickr called The Treasures of the Tweed Mural Project also which focuses exclusively on that mural.
