If you think the great Australian fishing village has all but disappeared, you’ll want to visit Chinderah.

Framing the wide lower reaches of the Tweed River with beautiful views wherever you turn, a holiday at Chinderah is all about quiet relaxation, fishing, picnics in the park and a few quiet ales at the local pub.

With a boat ramp and some of the Tweed’s best fishing spots along the foreshore or from the old Barney’s Point Bridge, there’s no excuse for coming home empty-handed – but if you do, you can pick up a fresh catch at one of the best fish ‘n’ chip shops in Australia located on the river bank in Chinderah.

For history buffs, two historic cemeteries contain the graves of pioneering families and the South Sea Islanders who helped establish the Tweed’s sugarcane industry. There’s also an art gallery, antique shop, café, a historic riverside hotel that serves great meals and a golf course that the locals so fondly dub “The Royal Chinderah Golf Course.”

Accommodation options include a motel and holiday park or you can base yourself in Kingscliff a 5minute drive down the road. To search and book accommodation CLICK HERE to view your options on the interactive map.
