The Tweed, as it is affectionately called, covers the area of Tweed Heads, Tweed Coast and Tweed Valley. It extends from the border town of Tweed Heads in northern New South Wales, to Wooyung on the Tweed Coast, and then inland to the Tweed Valley and Wollumbin. Must do things to do on The Tweed are as diverse as the region itself.
Possessing the best of three worlds, The Tweed has a spectacular hinterland; pristine beaches and quirky coastal villages, and a meandering river that snakes its way from the ocean into the valley. It also boasts the sophistication of an emerging foodie scene, with farm fresh produce abundant, and breweries and distilleries popping up in the region.
Tweed Heads is located right on the border of the Gold Coast in Queensland and is a thriving river town that is popular with holiday makers. The towns lifeblood is the Tweed River and waterways, that is evident with its amount of boats and the prevalent fishing industry. Here is why Tweed Heads offers a lot of “bang for buck”:
The Tweed Coast extends from Tweed Heads in the north to the laid-back village of Wooyung in the south. A day trip along the Tweed Coast will take you to some of the cutest little seaside villages. It will take you across estuarine creeks, through nature reserves, to scenic headlands, coastal lakes and epic surfing beaches.
The Tweed Valley is also known as the ‘Green Cauldron’, as millions of years ago it was formed from volcanic activity from Mount Warning or Wollumbin. These fertile lands are green and lush, with rich volcanic soil that is ideal for farming and growing all sorts of crops.
There are plenty of day trip experiences in the Tweed Valley, so don’t think you’ll fit it all into just one day. Select a base and take your time exploring this glorious region.
