Tyalgum is open for business

Tweed Shire Council

Nestled in the foothills of the Tweed caldera, the scenic village of Tyalgum is gearing up for what will be a busy festive season.

The village has had to endure the closure of Tyalgum Road – the main entry to the village – due to a huge landslip caused by the floods in February this year.

Since then, access to the village has been via Numinbah Road, through Chillingham and on to Zara and Limpinwood roads.

Council has been busy since February repairing and reconstructing this alternative access which has also involved new pavement construction, widening, new drainage works and safety improvements, in time for the holiday season.

Tyalgum is only a 30-minute scenic drive from Murwillumbah through the Tweed hinterland and the village is preparing for what the community hopes will be a festive season worth celebrating.

Discover Tyalgum’s Brad Sims said the village had been hit hard by the closure of Tyalgum Road.

“With a number of community events planned, the message is definitely ‘Tyalgum is open for business’,” Mr Sims said.

“We have a great range of boutique shopping, exquisite food and beverage venues and a variety of places to stay and enjoy some country hospitality.”

With Christmas rapidly approaching, the village is embracing the festival spirit with a number of events planned. These include:

  • Live music every Friday night at Flutterbucks Pizza

  • American-style BBQ smoker on every weekend at Tyalgum General Store

  • Christmas Garden Concert featuring the Heart Collectors – Garden of Light, Saturday 10 December

  • Hotel reopening – Tyalgum Hotel, Thursday 15 December

  • Tyalgum Community Christmas Carols – Tyalgum Hall, Sunday 18 December.

Details of events can be found at What’s On Tweed. Discover Tyalgum also distributes an email newsletter every week featuring all events, cafes, bars and shopping in the village. Read and/or subscribe to Discover Tyalgum at discovertyalgum.com.
