Murwillumbah - Imperial Hotel (17 Dec 2007)

Murwillumbah is a real old-world charmer of a town. Great facilities and packed with interesting architecture, it's somewhat of a capital for northern NSW. It was bypassed by the freeway in the last couple of years some I'm hoping the Route 66 phenomenon isn't repeated. However there seems to be enough "critical mass" from the surrounding small towns, savvy tourists and "tree changers" like me to keep it vibrant. Fingers crossed. For more information on the town and environs, visit Murwillumbah Visitor Information at the "Big Volcano" site.
