Tweed Heads

Booking.com

On the North Coast of New South Wales, lies the vibrant and scenic town of Tweed Heads. The town is nicknamed the twin city due to its similarity to neighbouring Coolangatta. The prime location by the Tweed River estuary, and the pristine beaches lining Tweed Heads provide not only spectacular scenery but a variety of fun things to do. Furthermore, the town is home to some excellent cultural activities.

Explore the glistening waters of the Tweed River and spot dolphins frolicking on a picturesque boat cruise, or opt for a crab catching cruise to trap and cook mud crabs on board. The river and its connected creeks are also ideal for kayaking and fishing. Leave the river behind in favour of the stunning beaches for swimming, deep sea fishing, whale watching, and surfing. 

Soak up some culture at the Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. As well as the fascinating museum and art gallery focused on the traditional life of the Minjungbal people, there is the Walk on Water Nature Walk. Venture through the wetlands on a boardwalk lined with signs explaining the flora, fauna, and bushtucker, to reach an Aboriginal ceremonial bora ring. Or learn about the history of Tweed Heads and the surrounding area at the Tweed Heads Historical Society Museum, featuring an impressive array of historical records, photographs, and memorabilia.

Tweed Heads is particularly proud of its fresh local produce and locally caught seafood, so there’s no better way to end the day than indulging in dinner at one of the delicious eateries.
