The Country Women's Association hostel, Murwillumbah openedin 1950. It was a boarding hostel for high school girls. In 1951, following discussion of the hostel's financial and progress reports at a public meeting of the Murwillumbah Parents and Citizen's Association, the decision was made to close the hostel. Some of the 15 girls who had stayed at the hostel were able to travel to Murwillumbah by bus, and alternate accommodation in the town was found for the others.
