Try some of the best cuisine in the region!

If you live in Murwillumbah, or just love good food, you've probably heard of Murwillumbah's Foodie Trail. Starting today from 6pm, and running through until 11pm, their Friday Foodie Trail gives you the chance to try cuisine from some of the best local cafes and restaurants in the area. Choose from $6 or $12 tasting plates from the best chefs in the area, and by the end of the night you will have savoured some of the most delightful, international cuisine. We've also found the best spots to stay if you're heading to this small town for the event.
