Tiny Village – Burringbar NSW
Burringbar is a tiny village tucked away in NSW’s Tweed Valley. The village consists of a General Store, Liquor Supplies, Post Office, butcher, café, shops and services. The Burringbar General Store and Liquor store were established in 1925.
Old Treasure Chest
Heath’s Old Wares and Fallen Leaf Expresso and Tea Bar are the two big drawcards. The Heath’s market stalls were on the local market circuit for some time before opening their first shop in Ballina. The store operated from 1990 until 2003 before relocating to a new shop in Bangalow from 2007 – 2015. Today, Heath’s Old Wares in at home in Burringbar, on the scenic Tweed Valley Way. I love rummaging through the long aisles of old wares in search for treasure.
A Mean Coffee
My visit to Burringbar came about after speaking to Josh, a coffee connoisseur from The Den Espresso at Murwillumbah. Everyday, I go on a coffee exploration in search of the best coffee available. Den Espresso is a tiny space on Wollumbin Street, Murwillumbah between Budd’s Mitre 10 Hardware and KFC. Murwillumbah is home to the Tweed Regional Art Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre. If you aren’t an art lover, I encourage you to visit the gallery just your the views.
Fallen Leaf Expresso and Tea Bar have hand-crafted brews, local coffee and delicious food. There is a wide selection of boutique teas, medicinal and other yummy goodies.
The local coffee is called ‘Moonshine Roasters‘ from Federal, Byron Bay NSW. Moonshine Coffee Brand is a small, family owned and operated business. The business is involved in all aspects of the coffee chain from growing, processing, roasting and brewing. Being a lover of a good latte, I love the favour of this super smooth and chocolaty coffee. It has subtle depth of complexity.

Keeping Communities Alive
Across from Fallen Leaf Expresso and Tea Bar in Burringbar NSW, is a large shady park with toilet facilities, BBQ shelters and a war memorial.
Like in most small villages and towns there is a community hall or public space that is used for gatherings and various other events and activites. The Burringbar School of Arts is a gorgeous old building and treasured by the locals.
