things to do


Crabbes Creek is a quiet rural village at the very southern tip of the Tweed Shire, half way between Murwillumbah in the Tweed Shire and Byron Bay in Byron Shire.

Crabbes Creek is close to Brunswick Heads, too, with its choice of beaches and many restaurants. Byron Bay is only 15 minutes away on the M1. Do some exciting retail therapy in the Industrial Estate as well as town, combined with a memorable day's sightseeing.

The valley road ends in open pasture and working banana plantations. The General Store, opened in 1890, invites you to remember a bygone era. The old Community Hall was the first Macedonian Church in Australia. A Chinese market garden existed and in the 1950s the area was farmed by many Italian families. Today the Community Hall is the social focus for locals.


Weekend markets are always somewhere close and spectacular Wooyung Beach is only 10 minutes drive from Crabbes Creek Cottages. If you want to "get away from it all" then this may be the place for you. Try some fishing (licence must be obtained first). From Wooyung you can see north to Tweed Heads and south to Byron Bay lighthouse. The beach is an ideal place to whale watch mid-year.


Enjoy rambling gardens, birdlife, picnic BBQ areas, walk to the licensed General Store or visit Byron, Murwillumbah and smaller towns such as Mooball and Burringbar, Stokers Siding, Uki, Chillingham, Mullumbimby and Bangalow.


When you start seeing black & white spots on the telegraph poles you know you have reached the unique country village of Mooball.

The Victory Hotel at Mooball has a homely family restaurant, with beer garden, Sky and Fox Sports as well as free tennis, swimming pool and kid's sandpit.

You will find roadside fruit stalls with freshly picked local produce, pleasant parks to enjoy a picnic, try some fishing (obtain a licence first!), kayak, windsurf, snorkel, fly in a balloon, "catch-a-crab" - there are SO many activities you can do or learn in this picturesque area. And there are still the National Parks which surround the area
