Mooball - the black and white town

Northern New South Wales is well known for its quirky towns and the residents of this Tweed Valley town are so proud of their dairy industry they have painted the town moo (the black and white variety).



I'm talking shop fronts, service stations, lamp posts, houses, wheelie bins and letterboxes. The whole place seems to be one celebration of all things spotted cow. Even if you're just driving through, along The Tweed Valley Way, the place is fun and will make you smile.

The name Mooball (pronounced Mow-bull) is an indigenous word which means large swamp. It is the first town on the Tweed Village Timber Art Trail which follows sculptural works in five different villages around the beautiful Tweed Valley. Artists and communities worked together on each unique sculpture dedicated to the local Cedar forests which the early settlers relied upon to provide homes, sheds and fencing. During the 1840s thousands of logs were milled here, taken to the big cities and turned into fine furniture. From Mooball, the Timber Art Trail continues on to Burringbar, Stokers Siding, Uki and Chillingham and is a great way to explore this corner of the Tweed Shire.
