Murwillumbah walks

Eight informative ‘Murwillumbah on the Move’ brochures, indicating landmarks and incorporating local history. The brochures offer visually delightful walking routes to follow and are graded from gentle and easy, to walks for those who are a little fitter.

With support from the National Heart Foundation’s ‘Just Walk It’ program, local volunteer leaders from the Murwillumbah community are ready and keen to lead the way.

The walks are free and Walk Leaders guide different walks on Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting at 7:50 am from the World Heritage Rainforest Centre in Murwillumbah.

Walkers need to register with Walk Leaders before to joining the groups on 02 6672 5840 (Sandra and Graham) or 02 6677 9121 (Lyn and Frank).
