Pronounced ‘yuke-eye’, meaning edible swamp fern root, the village of Uki is located on the edge of the national parks and the south arm of the Tweed Valley, just 15 km west of Murwillumbah. Across the Tweed River, the land rises steeply, sweeping up to the peaks of Mount Warning, Mount Uki and the Sisters.

First settled in the 1860’s, the main industry of the time was the timber cedar, but the land offered great dairy farming potential and this became the mainstay of the area.

Today, the village is filled with history, from the site of the Norco butter processing factory, the old bank (1910), Uki Hall (formerly the School of Arts, 1914), two churches and a convent.
 

There even continues to be families still living there who can trace their roots back into the early periods of the community, such as the Milsom family who run the local post office and have done so since 1919. Others can trace their roots back to the original settlers.

Visitors come to Uki to enjoy the easy pace of the village, relax with a picnic on the banks of the Tweed River, cast a fishing line, and visit the national parks or climb the peak of Mount Warning, which is roughly a four hour return trip.
