Facade: Art Deco of Murwillumbah

Art Deco duo
Pick up a copy of the Facade brochure from the Museum or Art Gallery to discover Murwillumbah's Art Deco features. This walk brochure was developed by the Art Gallery and Museum to accompany the Gallery's exhibition, Art Deco from the National Collection - the world turns modern.
Look closely as you walk through town to spot the geometrically 'stepped' roof tops, sun burst ceilings and leadlight windows that make Murwillumbah an Art Deco town.

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.


This walk highlights locations with pressed metal ceiling designs, along the Main Street and Commercial Road. The walk is an easy 1km walk and will take approximately 20 minutes.
