The Murwillumbah Motor Inn is an affordable Murwillumbah motel that is close to the town centre. Our motel units offer a full range of bedding options, so whatever sized group you are bringing, we have you covered.
If you’re looking for things to see and do in Murwillumbah, we always like to recommend the walks throughout the Wollinbin, Mooball, Lamington and Nightcap National Parks. Choose from one hour walks to longer five hour treks, or the longest nearby walk is the historic Nightcap National Park, which usually takes a day and a half to traverse. This walk between Mount Nardi and Rummery Park can be started at either end and uses parts of the original trail used by postal workers between Lismore and Murwillumbah around the early twentieth century.
For rainy days in Murwillumbah, the Regent Cinema on Brisbane Street is the perfect escape from the confines of a motel room. Built in 1947, this art deco building retains many of the beautiful old features of that time, but has been updated with the latest in digital projection technology and 5.1 surround sound in 2012.
Visit during the school holidays and there will be plenty of general release films to keep the kids happy. At other times the Regent specialises in presenting international art house films, together with a selection of the newest from Hollywood, as well as holding special events — that includes fund raising screenings, live music and other performances. Their Regent Bar is fully licensed so you can enjoy a quiet glass of wine or beer in their beautiful foyer, or on the balcony.
Arts and crafts lovers can visit the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre in Mistral Road, South Murwillumbah.

The Margaret Olley Art Centre (MOAC) celebrates the work of its namesake, Margaret Olley — Australia’s most celebrated painter of still life and interiors.
