MURWILLUMBAH CBD businesses should expect a huge boost in trade during the week of the Murwillumbah Art Trail (MAT), May 25-30, with organisers expecting at least 3,000 people to visit the MAT exhibitions and many of them to take advantage of guided tours known as MATours.
The MATours are designed for visitors to Murwillumbah who want to have the full MAT experience in a very short time.
Tourists will enjoy Murwillumbah and MAT2017 through the eyes of a local guide. They will meet the artists, hear about the history and art deco architecture, dine at selected restaurants, drink good coffee, relax and have a laugh, and delight in the full MAT art and food experience.
With nineteen sites confirmed for the MAT, the tour which incorporates morning tea and lunch is anticipated to take four to five hours.
Small groups of up to twelve people will all be wearing “on tour” badges so businesses should easily be able to recognise them.
“When you go visiting a new town the best way to see the most of it is to take a guided tour,” organiser Natascha Wernick said.
“These tours are designed for those who have never been to Murwillumbah and want to learn and see as much as they can in a short time.
“This is the opportunity to ask those aunties, uncles, cousins and friends from outside of Murwillumbah to visit. Invite them all! Let’s bring as much money to this town as we can during this time of recovery!”
