A beautiful town located on the far north end of New South Wales is Tweed Heads, which is popular across Australia for being a holiday spot. Situated along the Tweed River, people flock here to spend the day at the white sandy beaches and the glimmering ocean. There are more than enough accommodation options, making it a perfect starting point to explore the Tweed region.
There’s also a wide range of activities to do when you’re here, including a rainforest river cruise, where you can feed birds on an island or trap mud crabs or visit oyster farms.
Tweed Heads also offers some of the best surfing locations in Australia. The Tweed Coast Pro Surf Competition is held at Cabarita Beach, which can be accessed by a car hire from downtown Tweed Heads. There are also recreational fishing opportunities, which include deep sea fishing as well as fishing tours.
If you’d like to gain a little insight into this region’s heritage, then there are the Tweed Historic Site and the Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Exploring the region is best left to a car rental in downtown Tweed Heads, which allows you to travel at your own pace.
