Directions for getting to our beautiful little village, Tumbulgum, where we are located.

Directions from the South

If you want to avoid the Burringbar range continue along Pacific Hwy - Do not turn off Pacific Hwy until you get to the fly over sign indicating Murwillumbah. Once you turn off the Freeway heading for Murwillumbah you will travel past a big sign saying Tropical Fruit World on the left. As you travel south the river is on your right hand side and a turnoff to Tumbulgum is the first turnoff you will come to and as there are two entrances to tumbulgum you either take the first turnoff and go through Tumbulgum Village to the other end past the village itself until you come to the sign at the front.

Directions from the North

Via the Gold Coast or Brisbane, take the exit for Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley Way off the freeway just past the heavy vehicle weight station. Once you turn off follow the old pacific hwy until you come to the Tumbulgum turnoff. Drive through the Tumbulgum Village and go past all the houses until you come to a corner entrance to Tweed River Houseboat Hire. The houseboats are moored at our home/office mooring area south of the village.
