Art drawn to Tumbulgum
TUMBULGUM could soon ri- val Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland as a cafe and art gallery strip. That's the view of the his- toric village's latest fan, Leah Muller, new owner of a cafe and shop which had a brief history as a post office. Ms Muller said she fell in love with Tumbulgum on a recent trip from Kingscliff
where she had been living and practising as a naturo- path. On seeing the former post office store for sale, she was convinced it would make a great book shop and art gallery. "I came for a look down here out of curiosity and came across this house by pure accident," she said. Already Riverside Street,
Tumbulgum, boasts a num- ber of art galleries and an- other new eatery, the "Birdwing Cafe". Ms Muller's "Riverside Books, Cafe and Art" was previously approved as an art gallery prior to a brief interlude as a post office. The Tumbulgum post of- fice has since returned to its original home in the Ferryside General Store.
