Tweed Shire Council is currently undertaking a major expansion of the Tweed River Regional Museum at the original Shire Council Chambers of 1915 in Queensland Road, Murwillumbah – to create a better facility to store and display its valuable collections. Collections including a massive Robey steam engine, the original Council Chambers meeting table, a unique ornithological display of rare local species, a radio room and a larger-than-life fibreglass Banana Jim, mascot of the annual Banana Festival.

TSC’s Museum page says,

“The upgraded Murwillumbah museum, scheduled to reopen in late 2013, will provide substantial new collection display space, a significantly increased capacity to cater for visitors and school groups, and will maintain a research centre for the Murwillumbah Historical Society.”
