Celebrating NSW Youth Week in the Tweed

08 April 2024

This year’s NSW Youth Week will run from Thursday 11 April to Sunday 21 April, promising a range of fun events for young people across the Tweed. 

On Saturday 13 April Council will be supporting Murbah Youth Fest 2024, a free community event which will kick off at 10 am in Knox Park. 

Now in its second year, the festival includes a youth creative market, local bands and performers, workshops games and other activities for young people to get involved in. 

Also on Saturday 13 April will be a free movie afternoon at the quaint Kunghur Hall, which will feature a screening of the popular film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople. The event, hosted by Council, will offer attendees free popcorn and complimentary beanbags to chill on while they watch the film. 

To celebrate the artistic talent and creativity of young people living in the region, Tweed Regional Gallery’s Wollumbin Youth Art Award (WYAA) will also be open for entries for people aged 5 – 18 years.  

Also, for the creatively minded is the Gallery’s Youth Collective, which will be doing a special callout for new members during the week. The Collective connects like-minded, creative young people at the gallery to discuss and plan programs and events specifically for them – and is open for people aged 13 to19. TRGMOAC Youth Collective is proudly supported by the Tweed Regional Gallery Foundation Ltd.

Our local Richmond Tweed Regional Libraries will be joining in on the Youth Week festivities with two exciting events: on Monday 15 April, Tweed Heads Library will be calling all Mario Kart lovers for a fun afternoon of Nintendo mania from 10 am to 12 pm. 

On Friday 19 April, Murwillumbah Library will host an afternoon of Nintendo Switch and Wii games from 2 to 3.30pm.
