Beaches in Kingscliff
Kingscliff is a developing lifestyle and leisure centre on the North Coast, with a series of striking beaches surrounded by coastal rainforests. Admire the golden sands and natural surrounds from the Fingal Head Lighthouse lookout point, a popular location for fishing, leisurely strolls and flying kites.
The Kingscliff coastline consists of a series of golden beaches cradled between headlands. There are world-class surf breaks and a reef break on the southern edge of Kingscliff.
This region lies in close proximity to the Tweed Valley, the crater of a huge extinct volcano, now carpeted with a vivid green tapestry of farms and rainforest.
The New Tweed Coast is just a 15-minute drive from the Gold Coast Airport, which makes this an ideal choice for a short break.
Endowed with attractive street landscaping and some excellent cafes and restaurants, Kingscliff is becoming known as a gourmet destination.
Be sure to explore the region from an Aboriginal perspective at the Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre, which includes a museum, art gallery and souvenir shop, and explore the beautiful Tweed River. Take a relaxing cruise from Tweed Heads or hire a houseboat and discover the river for yourself. Also experience nightlife Tweed-style at one of the area's celebrated licensed clubs, such as the South Tweed Sports Club.
