Welcome to the Tweed, a place where sparkling seaside villages, riverside towns and hinterland hamlets create endless holiday experiences.
From morning surf lessons to an afternoon gallery browse, lunchtime river cruise to a gin distillery tour and country drive to beach view cocktails.
The Tweed is a beach-lover's dream holiday, with a string of gorgeous seaside hamlets dotted along a 37km stretch of beautiful coastline, covering all you need for aquatic adventures from heart-pumping action to meditative moments. Families, couples, girl groups or friend getaways, whatever your gathering, the Tweed's beach villages can accommodate.
You'll sleep easy, from 5-star resorts to luxe glamping and picturesque holiday parks, and never go hungry with breezy coffee shops, global fare and awarded restaurants all on the menu.
Flowing from the sea and weaving its way inland beside towns both peaceful and vibrant, the mighty Tweed River is a stunningly expansive waterway inviting exploration at every twist and turn it takes.
From bustling Tweed Heads to peaceful Tumbulgum, take a cruise, throw in a line, grab a paddle or simply sit riverside to breathe it all in. For your appetite, try a relaxed marina with impressive yacht views or traditional pub fare right beside the river. There are also local food markets, must-sip coffee shops and a gin and rum distillery offering tours, tastings and take-home bottles.
Visit the Tweed's sweet valley towns, from Murwillumbah to Tyalgum, Uki to Burringbar and everywhere else in between, and you'll find a vibrant ambience that is instantly energising.
It's in the fresh air, the contrast of high peaks and stretching plains and the fresh green vistas at every turn in the road. It's in the farm-to-plate focus and food with a view, the innate creative vitality and the flow between rivers and mountain ranges.
There are historic homesteads to dine at, gorgeous rainforest retreats to sleep in and national parks, shoulder to shoulder, creating endless tracks to explore.
