Tweed Heads is twinned with Coolangatta, part of Queensland's Gold Coast which is situated just across the border. The two towns have a lot in common, including a main street that marks the state border! The best thing about these towns being so close to one another is that their stunning beaches are within walking distance of each other. Coolangatta Beach is to the north of the Tweed, and Doppys Beach is the closest one to the town itself, and has Flagstaff Beach to the north and Fingal Beach to the south. 34 kilometres of beaches grace the coast of the Tweed Shire, so surfers, fishermen and swimmers are extremely spoiled for choice! The surf culture is especially alive and well in this region, with international competitions being held up and down the coast. The variety of waves mean beginners to advanced levels are catered for, so if you've always wanted to try out the sport then this is the place to do it.
The Tweed River passes through the town and into a large estuary where it enters the sea. The setting here is simply beautiful, the broadwater created by the estuary is demarcated by two high headlands, one to the north and one to the south. The northerly one is known as Point Danger, and the views up and down the coast from here make it a worthwhile drive up, and you can also visit the memorial to Captain Cook here. The Tweed River is the perfect base for watersports of all kinds. Hire a tinny (a small aluminium boat), cruise its banks and try your luck at fishing or just take in the sights and sounds of the lush vegetation and its abundant birdlife. Kayakers and canoeists frequent the waters as well, and all forms of watersports equipment are available for hire. Fishing is also popular up and down the coast as well as on the river, and charter boats and tours are available to take you to the deeper water for the real big fish.
What lies inland of Tweed Heads is just as spectacular as what lies on the coast. In the past the region was a hotbed of volcanic activity, and this has resulted in the mountain ranges lying behind the Tweed. The fertile soils from this activity, coupled with the sub tropical climate, has resulted in the dense rainforest vegetation that drapes the surrounding landscapes. Mt. Warning National Park is home to the world heritage listed Mt. Warning, which is the remnant central plug of an old shield volcano. As well as being extremely beautiful and offering panoramic views the mountain is also immensely significant to the local indigenous population as a place of cultural law, initiation and spiritual education. There are lots of campsites, lookouts and picnic spots that visitors to the park can make the most of, and you are bound to see all sorts of birds and wildlife.
The town of Tweed Heads itself is full of character and has its own unique style that sets it apart from the northern suburbs of the Gold Coast. It is renowned for its range of seafood restaurants that serve up fresh local seafood straight from the ocean. A lively and vibrant atmosphere means entertainment is never far away, yet there is also a peaceful holiday feel to the town that means you cannot help but relax. The friendly and welcoming locals complete the setting for the perfect coastal holiday. With an international airport at Coolangatta, and Brisbane and the Gold Coast easily accessible along the highway, Tweed Heads is an easy and rewarding destination for your next holiday.
