BURRINGBAR, MOOBALL & CRABBES CREEK

In the southern section of the Valley, Burringbar, Mooball and Crabbes Creek form a trio of picturesque communities on the scenic Tweed Valley Way.
Burringbar 2

The old railway line passes through Burringbar

Burringbar is a quiet stop-off point with a general store and roadside fruit stalls. The area is home to the award-winning Tweed Valley Whey Farmhouse Cheeses, which you can buy in the general store or at farmers’ markets throughout the Tweed and Byron shires.

At Mooball, the locals have taken their town’s name literally by painting black and white cow patches on just about everything that doesn’t move  – the telephone poles, the local café and petrol station, the petrol bowsers, the wheelie bins, even a random jeep parked by the side of the road.

Moo Moo Roadhouse

The Moo Moo Roadhouse is a popular stop

Somehow Mooball’s historic Victory Hotel managed to evade the painters to retain its classic 1930s country pub charm.  The Moo Moo Roadhouse is hard to miss as you drive into town on the Tweed Valley Way. Enjoy a classic hamburger washed down with a milkshake before browsing the vintage memorabilia – old cars and newer bikes are on display as well as for sale.

Tweed Valley Way reconnects with the Pacific Motorway at Crabbes Creek – a picture-postcard corner of the Valley that provides endless inspiration for photographers and nature-lovers.

From here, it’s only a 10 minute drive to the Tweed Coast beaches, making it a perfect spot to stay if you want to combine rural tranquility with a relaxing beach holiday.
