Welcome to the Tweed

Nestled in the caldera of an ancient shield volcano, the Tweed stretches from world-famous Byron Bay in NSW to Queensland’s sun-drenched Gold Coast.

Nominated by Tourism Australia as a National Landscape – Australia’s Green Cauldron – the Tweed offers lush World Heritage rainforests and dramatic mountain ranges just a short drive from unspoilt beaches and world-famous surf breaks.

Journey along the road less travelled from the bustling hub of Tweed Heads to sleepy seaside villages and tranquil waterways meandering through cane fields and dairy farms to quirky rural communities immersed in a vibrant culture of music, art, creativity, spirituality… and a sense of adventure.

Meet a colourful cast of local characters in country pubs and urban clubs. Celebrate with them at festivals and concerts. Admire their handiwork at artist studios and galleries. Chat with them at roadside stalls and farmers’ markets. Enjoy their hospitality at cosy rainforest retreats, friendly B&Bs and luxury oceanfront resorts.

It’s all about the people … and it’s all about you.
