The centre opened in 1974 at the hospital, in response to a perceived community need by a group of concerned business people. It evolved into a Neighbourhood Centre located in King Street under the name “Murwillumbah Community Aid”.
The next 30 years
The name was later changed to Murwillumbah Community Support Centre because of the similarity to other welfare agency names. The centre was relocated to the north of the railway station on land leased from the Railway Authorities. Two older railway buildings were moved to the site and renovated to provide emergency accommodation and offices for administration.
On the 23 October 1996, the centre relocated to a building formerly used by the Murwillumbah Soccer Club in Knox Park, which is centrally located in the heart of the CBD. The Tweed Shire Council provided the space rent free.
On the 17th June 2004 the name was changed to the Murwillumbah Community Centre Inc.
A new beginning
On 23 November 2012, the community of Murwillumbah welcomed a custom built new centre, located adjacent to the existing community centre in Knox Park. The new centre was jointly funded by the Federal Government, NSW State Government and Tweed Shire Council.
In January, 2013, the old community centre next door to the new Community HUB was opened as “Nullum House“, a social inclusion centre, where people can come for homeless support, a meal, shower, wash some clothes, enjoy an activity or meet new friends.
