The Village of Tyalgum

Tropical Northern Rivers Region of NSW, Australia

Tyalgum North Coast NSW Australia

Set close to the rim of the world's largest extinct shield volcano and home to the famous Tyalgum Music Festival, Tyalgum Village is located a scenically beautiful 30 minute drive from the centre of Murwillumbah on the far North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Tyalgum is a small village consisting of the Tyalgum General Store & Post Office, Tyalgum Pub which is also home to the local Swimming Pool, Tyalgum Hall, CTC, Garage, a gift & wood-working shop and the charming Flutterbies Cafe.


Although seemingly an odd place to stage a now internationally famous annual festival of Classical Music, the Tyalgum Festival started in 1991 after concert violinists Carmel Kaine and John Willison fell under the acoustic spell of the Tyalgum Hall. The Festival has been held annually in September ever since, with numerous artists ranking the 1908 Hall alongside some of the best concert venues in the world.

Tourists and locals alike love to visit Flutterbies Cottage Cafe.

Housed in the historical bakery building founded in 1927, the lovely ladies of Flutterbies have a warm welcome and big smile ready for all.

Whether to pore over the range of gifts in the Victorian style gift shoppe, to relax in the peaceful courtyard over coffee and home-made cake, choose something for the garden from their charming nursery or indulge in one of their famous home-made pies for lunch, Flutterbies can be a quick visit or a longer indulgence depending on your mood.

The delicious home-made rose water lemonade is a definite "must try" on your visit though.

Flutterbies is open most days from 10am to 5pm, but "special event" dinners will be coming soon. Phone (02) 6679 3221 for more information.

Once refreshed at Flutterbies, take a stroll down Coolman Street to peruse the local handy-craft shop or take a photo of the original school house, built in the 1920s and still going strong.
