Tapping into Murwillumbah's Arts and Heritage Potential

A strategic project to increase visitors to Murwillumbah by promoting arts and heritage has received $887,000 in funding through the NSW Government’s Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund.
 
Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP, made the announcement at Tweed Regional Museum Murwillumbah yesterday.
 
The four projects funded under the Murwillumbah Arts & Heritage Precinct are:

 
Council’s General Manager Troy Green welcomed the funding for the projects.
 
“Murwillumbah’s tourism strengths lie in its natural environment, arts and heritage and these projects will assist in drawing more visitors into the town, encouraging them to explore more and stay longer,” Mr Green said.
 
“The app will guide visitors to attractions such as the Treasures of the Tweed Mural and the Caldera Wall at Tweed Regional Museum, while further enhancement of Knox Park will make it a much more inviting place to visit and enjoy the town.
 
“Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre attracts over 120,000 visitors to Murwillumbah – we need to encourage more of those visitors to head into town as we have so much more to offer,” he said.
