Pottsville is a picture-postcard vision of the quintessential seaside holiday destination.

Caravans and tents line the banks of the creek where children splash around in the clear, calm waters while anglers cast a line in from the nearby banks. It’s an easy stroll to the beach, shops and some great little cafes and restaurants. The Pottsville Beach Sports Club is the hub of community life and a picturesque nine-hole golf club is just a short drive away on the outskirts of town.

Here you’ll also find one of the Tweed Coast’s best kept secrets – the Tweed Bicentennial Leisure Gardens. Stretching over 54 hectares between the two arms of Cudgera Creek, the reserve protects areas of mangroves, eucalypts and remnant rainforest. It is networked with walking tracks and boardwalks leading to viewing platforms by the creek and is a haven for bird and wildlife watchers. Facilities here include free electric barbeques and picnic tables.

Another favourite Pottsville place is Mooball Creek where you can kayak or canoe upstream for miles, eventually emerging from the tree cover to be greeted with a stunning view of Wollumbin Mt Warning.

In terms of accommodation, Tweed Coast Holiday Parks have the best spots by the banks of Cudgera Creek on the north side of town and fronting onto Mooball Creek at Pottsville South. To search and book accommodation CLICK HERE to view your options on the interactive map.

Visit Pottsville on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month for the popular Beach Markets where you can purchase farm fresh produce, plants, homemade treats, art/craft, clothing jewellery and much more. It’s fun for all ages with live music and amusements for the kids. Check out the local markets from 7.30am, grab some lunch at one of the local cafes then have a swim at the creek or enjoy a stroll along the beach.
