Mt Warning (Wollumbin) in the heart of the Tweed Valley is the backdrop for rambling bushwalks and country drives. Visitors will find cosy B&Bs and retreats nestled amidst tea plantations and market gardens. 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.

Safe, patrolled swimming beaches are lined with first class resort hotels and accommodation is available to suit all tastes and budgets. Vibrant seaside esplanades offer boutique shopping, sun-drenched cafés and award winning restaurants that serve produce grown in the rich fertile soils our region is famous for.

Each town and village in the Tweed has its own sense of community, pride, and spirit; each unique in its own special way. For more information, click the right sidebar links to discover the towns and villages of the Tweed.
