Arching around the shoulders of the river, Tumbulgum is where the Tweed and Rous Rivers intersect, and is said to take its name from a local indigenous word for ‘meeting of the waters’. 

Tumbulgum has a tucked-away, timeless ambience, set back quietly from the main road and opening up to surprise first-time visitors with its picturesque setting. Jump onboard a cruise to really take in the grandeur and beauty of the river system, spot myriad birdlife and see Wollumbin from a new vantage point. For the more active, hire a SUP or kayak to navigate these ancient waters. 

Visitors to Tumbulgum can take things at their own pace, with a simple picnic and spot of fishing or a gin and rum distillery tour at the stunning Husk Distillers, home to the famous and tasty Ink Gin, creating a holiday vibe that’s just perfect for the moment. 

We wish to acknowledge the Ngandowal and Minyungbal speaking people of the Bundjalung Country, in particular the Goodjinburra, Tul-gi-gin and Moorung – Moobah clans, as being the traditional owners and custodians of the land and waters within the Tweed Shire boundaries. We also acknowledge and respect the Tweed Aboriginal community’s right to speak for its Country and to care for its traditional Country in accordance with its lores, customs and traditions.
