Wonderful Wunderlich! - Murwillumbah
Murwillumbah is full of hidden wonders and secrets, you just have to know where to look. Come with us on a tour of secret Murwillumbah, easily discovered by simply looking up!
Many buildings in Murwillumbah feature beautiful pressed metal Art Nouveau and Art Deco ceiling designs, all made by the Wunderlich Ltd Company. Wunderlich was one of Australia’s most significant building companies, creating architectural elements for many iconic Sydney buildings including the Sydney Town Hall and the terracotta facade of the Commonwealth Bank in Martin Place. Over the lifespan of the company, Wunderlich produced materials in many styles including ornate Neoclassical Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Gothic designs, often being ahead of movements and trends. Wunderlich was part of the very fabric of the Australian building industry and their designs help to tell the story of the stylistic and social change in Australia through much of the 19th and 20th century.
