The most northerly town of NSW, Tweed Heads sits next to the Queensland border exposed to miles of golden beaches while sitting in the heart of the Green Cauldron – a rim of mountain ranges and lush rainforest snaked by the northern rivers.
This diverse setting makes for a perfect holiday destination and a lovely relaxed location for retirees wanting to settle down while still having the appeal of proximity to major centres like the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Neighbouring its ‘twin town’ of Coolangatta just over the border, Tweed is on the edge of a time zone while Day Light Savings is happening (October through to March) with many locals taking advantage to enjoy two New Year’s celebrations by hopping the border after midnight each year.
With Tweed Heads accommodation ranging from luxury resorts to homely B&BS, beautiful housing and a long list of award winning retirement villages, ample medical facilities, your choice of private and public schools, a range of sporting centres and shopping districts, Tweed really does have something for everyone.
Discovered and named by John Oxley in 1823 after the river on the English/Scottish border, the Tweed River has seen some traffic over the years.
A military outpost was set up in the area but quickly abandoned due to hostilities with the local aborigines. In 1844 the cedar getters made camp as they searched for timber to build Sydney homes and boat builders followed making schooners, river boats, fishing and row boats for settlers to get around the Tweed before the development of roads, bridges and farriers in the 1930s.
Time has seen the Tweed area go through sugar cane, dairy, and banana farming and even fishing to become a major exporter of produce. Since the 1940s though, the area has become very popular for tourism with a large influx of retirees from southern Australia to make it one of the country’s fastest growing coastal areas.
