Murwillumbah Chamber of Commerce
Since its beginnings in 1987, Murwillumbah Chamber of Commerce has been actively involved in many projects to support the business community, including ‘Buy Local’ campaigns, the BEATS (Business Excellence) Awards, and the campaigning for security cameras in the business centre of Murwillumbah. In 2017, MDBC took a very proactive role in supporting and informing local businesses after the devastating floods.
The Board of Murwillumbah And District Business Chamber is made up of a small group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about business and the prosperity of businesses in Murwillumbah and the surrounding villages.
Networking events are held on a regular basis to keep members informed on current issues.
Murwillumbah is the heart of the Tweed Shire. With a population of over 8,000 people, it is an historic art deco town with many buildings dating back to 1920.
Located on the banks of the Tweed River and nestled in the volcanic caldera of Mount Warning, Murwillumbah is renowned for its picturesque setting.
Earlier industry focused on cedar getting and dairy farming. However more recently the focus is on sugarcane farming, tourism, light industry, and the creative arts.
Murwillumbah is the commercial capital of the region, with a hospital, medical and health services, banking facilities, accounting professionals, a variety of interesting shops, and several art galleries. A major draw card to the town is the Tweed Regional Art Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre.
Small and medium businesses are the backbone of the Murwillumbah economy. We have a well-established light industrial area on the outskirts of town, made up of many very successful businesses, some distributing their products both nationally and internationally. The CBD of Murwillumbah has a wide variety of shops and interesting places to eat.
Murwillumbah and the surrounding villages are renowned for their creativity with the region having the largest number of artists per capita in Australia.
