Blessed with beautiful beaches, Kingscliff is perfect for relaxing on soft white sands. There are world-class surf breaks and a reef break on the southern edge of Kingscliff, a popular holiday destination in the Tweed region on the far North Coast of NSW.
With consistent waves, learning to surf is easy with In2surf Surf School and Watersports Guru, which also offers kayaking and snorkelling tours and a special program for kids aged seven to twelve. The snorkelling tour is to Cook Island Aquatic Reserve, where you’ll swim with green sea turtles.
Another exhilarating experience is cycling on the beaches and cycle paths along the spectacular coast from Fingal Head in the north, where you’ll find the 19th century Fingal Head Lighthouse, to Pottsville in the south. You can hire beach bicycles from Kingscliff Cycle Centre.
An excellent range of cafes and restaurants is along Marine Parade and Bells Boulevard, including the award-winning seafood restaurant Fins. Taste fresh regional produce at the Kingscliff Markets, held on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. Kids will be delighted with a visit to the nearby Tropical Fruit World where there are rare exotic fruits, such as chocolate pudding fruit, as well as friendly kangaroos.
A short drive south of Gold Coast Airport and Tweed Heads, Kingscliff has plenty of accommodation options, from oceanfront resorts to beachside campgrounds. The towering Mount Warning in the World Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park is about 45 minutes’ drive from Kingscliff.
