The Arts

Creative energy runs strong and deep in The Tweed, so much so that it’s a fact there are more artists per capita living here than in any other Australian town!

With all these makers and musicians, performers and teachers living and creating right here across our coast and country towns, it’s easy to get a fix of the arts whether you’re viewing, learning or purchasing a take-home piece.

Galleries, makers and music

The Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre is our signature space, set high over picture-perfect green rolling hills and delivering constantly changing inspiration in its six exhibition spaces and a breathtaking homage to Margaret Olley, one of Australia‚Äôs most-loved artists. Don’t miss the Tweed Regional Museum for insights into the past and how our people and villages have evolved over time.

A must for artists and art-lovers is Gallery DownTown in Murwillumbah, housed in the artistic hub of M|Arts Precinct, a warehouse space embracing a spectrum of artists who make, show and sell their work.

Buy direct from local makers at galleries or at village markets, take a class in knitting, painting, jewellery making or floristry and put one of our many art events in your calendar from the Murwillumbah Art Trail each May to the long-running Tyalgum Music Festival in September.
