"Close to the Gold Coast without the hustle and bustle"

I live in Tweed Heads for 7 years and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be close to the Gold Coast but still maintain that close small town community feeling. Great Schools and Fantastic beaches, the town is a wonderful place to both live, work and play.

"Tweed Heads - too many good things to mention!"

We live in Margaret Street, Tweed Heads and just love the location. The Tweed River is walking distance with a great park for families and also a boat ramp which gets lots of use. The local seafood outlet is famous for fresh fish and there are also trawlers which sell fish they have just caught. It definitely is paradise for seafood lovers. There is great shopping in Coolangatta and Tweed with two large shopping centres. There is the hospital close by and also a large day surgery facility. Heaps of restaurants, entertainment venues for the young and the rest! The beaches are just beautiful, our favourite being Rainbow Bay. The Gold Coast airport is only 15 minutes away and also Southern Cross University has two campuses close by. We moved here from the Gold Coast and wished we had moved here long ago. I would recommend our area for all age groups.

"Great beaches & a relaxed lifestyle"

Tweed Heads is the Northernmost costal town bordering the NSW/QLD border with great beaches, endless surfing, waterways and a relaxed lifestyle. There is a huge variety of leisure and recreation options including bird-watching at Fingal Headland, whale-watching or exploring the beautiful Tweed River by taking a relaxing cruise.The Razorback Lookout provides an amazing and spectacular view of the Tweed River Valley or drive along this glorious valley through World Heritage listed National Parks. For a scrumptious meal, try the Tweed Harbour for some of the freshest seafood on offer or you can take a picnic to Duranbah Beach or Fingal Beach. To experience the nightlife, the Twin Towns Services Club or South Tweed Bowling Club are ideals spots to go.

"The tale of two cities, or something like that."

Where else have you heard of a city being in two different states. The city has grown up on either side of the Tweed River, but it spans the border of NSW and Qld.

Tweed Heads has become a very popular place for retirees because the weather is excellent. Not too hot a summer and not too cold a winter. It is no wonder it is such a popular holiday spot. Tweed Head backs on the world reknown Coolangatta and then over the hill to Kirra, a world reknown surf beach.

Very much a holiday area the city caters for holiday makers in every sense of the word: a variety of accommodation, takeaways through to quality restaurants, fishing, boating, surfing, bowling, golf and so much more.

There is quite a lot of industry in the area because of the fishing and boating, but also because of the rural area behind. Tweed Heads tends to the the residential area backing on to and supporting the work on the Gold Coast.

If you love prawns then you will not go with out down in this area. There is no shortage of supply of fish and other seafood. Not far south of Tweed Heads is the Tropical Fruit World which is worth a visit. Tropical fruit and prawns go well together.
