Tweed Heads is the twin sister of Coolangatta, both border towns between New South Wales and southeastern Queensland. The area is thriving with activity both in the city and amongst nature. Tweed Heads is accessible via the Gold Coast Airport
in Coolangatta. It’s also possible to arrive via an hour-long bus ride from Brisbane.
The list of attractions found in Tweed Heads is impressive and includes 3 World Heritage-listed areas, 14 national parks and reserves, and kilometers of coastline.
