The Tweed

The Tweed has it all!

From first-class surf beaches to World Heritage rainforests – the Tweed has it all!

So much on offer

The Tweed offers a holiday destination with a unique combination of World Heritage rainforests, dramatic mountain ranges, fertile green fields, uncrowded beaches and world-famous surf breaks all nestled in the caldera of the largest shield volcano in the southern hemisphere.  On the north coast of NSW, bordering the Queensland border – the Tweed offers so much for short breaks or long holidays.

See it first

Be the first to see the sunrise on the mainland of Australian from the summit of Wollumbin Mt Warning.  Standing in the heart of the Tweed Valley  is the backdrop for rambling bush walks and country drives through this ancient landscape.  There are short strolls to three day hikes.


Discover the Tweed’s tranquil waterways.  Learn to surf, kayak, canoe, dive, snorkel and stand-up paddleboard.  Experience the spectacular beauty of the Tweed on a rainforest or crab catching cruise.

Art and culture

The Tweed Valley boasts the highest number of artists per capita than any other shire in Australia. Local galleries showcase the work of artists inspired by the landscape, wildlife, history, community and spirituality of the region.  The Tweed Gallery is not to be missed with a permanent Margaret Olley exhibition.
