Mur’bah traders join voucher scheme to boost business
MURWILLUMBAH businesses have until Friday to sign up for a new tourism voucher scheme.
Murwillumbah Chamber of Commerce has given businesses the opportunity to offer special deals, in a bid to encourage more visitors into the town.
The announcement of the voucher scheme comes in the lead-up to the Margaret Olley Art Centre's opening.
Tweed Regional Art Gallery director Susi Muddiman said with the opening of the Margaret Olley centre, the town could see a more permanent increase.
Ju Ju's restaurant owner Jonathon Evans said he might consider contributing to the voucher scheme in future.
"I think anything's worth a try," Mr Evans said.
"The market's out there, it's just a matter of bringing them in."
Murwillumbah's tourist vouchers will be available at the art gallery, tourist information centre and at special events throughout the year.
