The village of Tumbulgum was once the principle town on the Tweed and Rous Rivers. In 1897 nearby Murwillumbah got the railway to Lismore and the Murwillumbah Bridge in 1901, which saw Tumbulgum's status decline. Today, it is a quiet picturesque village, achieving National Heritage classification for a number of its buildings.

With the river providing the focus for a number of activities such as boating, water skiing and fishing, Tumbulgum is a great place to visit. The local cemetery is also full of history, with graves dating back to 1871.
