It’s hard to go past the Tweed and its modern, well-equipped holiday parks as the perfect base to spend some time exploring one of Australia’s top tourist regions.
Soak up the sun, dine on amazingly fresh local seafood or visit the many interesting villages in the beautiful green hinterland. The Tweed is an idyllic location for summer family holidays, a relaxed weekend getaway or a mid-winter warmer.
The bright lights of the Gold Coast and its attractions are only a short drive away, yet the Tweed offers a much simpler and relaxed pace.
On the coast, the seaside playgrounds of Pottsville, Cabarita and Kingscliff are havens for water sports. Swim, surf, snorkel, or drop in a fishing line. With 37km of unspoilt beaches to choose from, the hardest decision is picking where to go.
Further inland, the charming villages of Uki, Tyalgum and Stoker’s Siding have an infectious sense of community and pride. Be sure to peer into the lovingly restored buildings, now transformed into cosy cafes, art galleries and gift stores.
No matter what kind of holiday you seek, the Tweed is the place to be.
Open again after a major upgrade, Kingscliff North is the perfect park for a beachfront holiday without breaking the bank. Kingscliff, is popular for fishing, surfing, and kite boarding. Only 2km from the Kingscliff town centre, the pet friendly park boasts beachfront villas and cabins, Surfari tents with ensuite bathrooms, and a selection of large caravan and camp sites. The park also has amenities and cabins for people with disabilities.
Situated on a protected stretch of Terranora Creek, an inlet from the beautiful Tweed River, Boyds Bay Holiday Park is a popular spot for families who love fun in the sun. Rent a dingy or barbeque boat and putter along the creek, throw a fishing line in to the river, or cross the bridge and walk over the border to Coolangatta. The park features a heated pool, sheltered barbeques, WiFi, and a private boat ramp.
Fingal is like an oasis from the fast pace of the southern Gold Coast. The township, famous for its brilliant surf and fishing, is just 10 minutes from Tweed yet feels like a million miles away. The Fingal Holiday Park offers a mix of grassy tent and caravan sites through to luxury cabins and villas, along with barbeque and playground facilities.
The park is set directly between the beach and town centre, You can pitch a tent, bring a caravan, or stay in one of the luxury cabins. The shops, restaurants and clubs Kingscliff is known for are all nearby, while a surf beach patrolled in the summer months is just metres away.
In this part of the Tweed, life tends to move a little slower. Renowned for year round surfing, swimming and fishing, Hastings Point is a perfect for an extended stay. Set overlooking the beach and Cudgera Creek, Hasting Point Holiday Park offers a range of caravan and camping options, along with Surfari Tents for a little more luxury. Primitive camping on the headland is offered during school holidays.
For an active family holiday you can’t go past Pottsville North. The park has two swimming pools and a children’s playground along with basketball and volleyball courts. Of course, the star attraction of Pottsville is really its beautiful beach. Simply cross the road and wander down a sandy track and you’ll find yourself there.
Just a short walk from shops and restaurants, Pottsville’s “other” holiday park has something not many can boast – absolute waterfront sites and luxury cabins. The location right beside Mooball Creek is picture perfect, with all the facilities you’d expect on hand.
