About Tweed Heads
The sub-tropical climate, great beaches and relaxed lifestyle make this a natural holiday spot. The Tweed region is also the place to see some of Australia's, and the world's, top surfers in action. Grafted onto those natural credentials is a huge array of leisure and recreation options, including some of the largest licensed clubs in the country.
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 Twin Towns Services Club.
