Sports + Adventure

While there is plenty to see indoors, it is the outdoors which showcases the true adventure.

The Tweed’s breathtaking scenery and diverse natural environment is a great excuse to head outdoors. With our subtropical climate and fantastic beaches, landscaped parks and wide open spaces, it’s no surprise that we love our sports and adventure here in the Tweed.

The Tweed offers a wealth of experiences – hike the summit of an ancient volcano to see the sunrise in the morning and take a surfing lesson at a beach that is home to world-surfing champions in the afternoon.

We simply live and breathe outdoor activities  so you won’t be short of options, choose from kayaking, canoeing, diving, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, high ropes courses, deep sea fishing, hiking, horse riding, abseiling, water-skiiing, skateboarding, you name it and we’ve got it on offer.

Choose your own adventure or check out our list of operators below and enjoy a guided experience.

If you’re a mad-keen fitness fan why not enter one of our triathlons, cycling events or fun runs, they’re popular with locals and visitor alike. Check out the events calendar for all the up and coming events.

Slow down the pace and have a hit at one of the the Tweed’s many golf courses, all courses boast beautiful views, challenging plays and competitive rates.

Golf courses are located at Murwillumbah, Chinderah, Pottsville, Coolangatta & Tweed Heads.

Is fishing your addiction? The ocean, creeks, rivers and estuaries in the Tweed region offer a lifetime’s worth of challenges so pull up a deck chair and find yourself a spot on the bank to throw in a line and try your luck. Don’t forget that fishing licenses are required.
