Tweed Heads

Tweed Heads is on the far New South Wales coast on the Queensland border. Whilst here you should definitely walk out to Point Danger where you will be greeted by a large memorial for Captain Cook. The memorial marks the New South Wales and Queensland border divide, and you can actually stand in both states at the same time.

From Point Danger you can also get fantastic views. Looking north you can see the Gold Coast in Queensland and looking south you can see along the Far North Coast coastline in New South Wales.

Whilst at Tweed Heads you should take time to explore the picturesque Tweed River, where you can see plenty of wildlife. Popular activities along the river include canoeing, fishing and kayaking. Tweed Heads Photograph

You can also hire a boat so that you can explore the river on your own for a relaxing day.

Heading north from Tweed Heads you will come to Coolangatta, its twin town situated on the Gold Coast in Queensland. Both Tweed Heads and Coolangatta offer great beaches within easy walking distance of each other. You will also find some great surfing spots, all along this coastal area.
