The Tweed Regional Museum showcases the natural and social history of the Tweed area.
Permanent displays include Land | Life | Culture, which shares unique cultural, biological, and geological stories that shape life in the Tweed Valley. The exhibition introduces the extraordinary richness of this environment and of life in the Tweed, including a touchscreen animation of the Wollumbin/Mount Warning shield volcano and how it has shaped the landscape over millions of years.
Members of the local Bundjalung community have contributed significantly to Land | Life | Culture, sharing stories of this unique cultural landscape and its enduring significance.
The Museum is also home to the Adrian Smith Mineral Collection, containing over 500 mineral specimens and 300 gemstones, and a stunning collection of thunder eggs that tell the story of the molten lava that once flowed through the area over 20 million years ago.
