In September make sure you secure your Tyalgum Festival accommodation. The Murwillumbah Motor Inn has your accommodation covered for one of the classical worlds best kept secrets. We offer clean and comfortable accommodation in the centre of Murwillumbah that is spacious and modern.
Every year the beautifully refurbished 110 year old Tyalgum community hall becomes the venue for the Tyalgum Festival where some of the world’s finest classical musicians perform in one of the worlds acoustically best sounding small venues. While the focus is on classical music with small groups and ensembles, there are also folk and traditional performances on the program too.
Tylagum is a village located deep in the heart of Australia’s Green Caldera, a scenic twenty minute drive from Murwillumbah that takes you past Eungella and Mt Warning, so accommodation books up quite well in advance in the neighbouring areas. The Murwillumbah Motor Inn offers a comprehensive range of studio and apartment accommodation available in a bedding configuration to suit most groups. Studios start at queen beds, double single beds, a queen and two single beds, two queen beds, or an apartment with two bedrooms consisting of a queen bed in one room and two singles in the other. Every room comes with television and Foxtel, an iPod dock, and light cooking facilities that include a microwave oven, refrigerator, a toaster and kettle for tea and coffee making.
Even if you are arriving in Murwillumbah outside the Tylagum Festival season, Tylagum is a fascinating place to visit with several arts and crafts shops on the main street, displaying local handicrafts and homewares. Oven-fresh treats and coffee can be had at Flutterbies Cottage Cafe, a coffee and gift shop housed in the “Old Bakery” building that was built around 1926. During the weekend, cooler refreshments can be had at the Tyalgum Gelato Shop adjacent to the old hall. The Tyalgum Village Market is held on the 4th Saturday of the month and provides visitors with the opportunity to meet local artisans, farmers and producers.
