The natural choice for business

From the Mayor

Tweed Shire Council Mayor, Katie Milne

Katie Milne
Mayor of the Tweed

The majestic beauty and incredible biodiversity of this ancient volcanic caldera forming the Tweed resonates throughout the area, and inspires us all greatly in our everyday lives.

The Tweed is a region of such outstanding environmental, scenic and geological significance, and wonderfully powerful indigenous cultures.

Our community is passionate about caring for Country, taking our responsibilities for climate change seriously, and transitioning to a clean and green future as quickly as possible.

We have an amazing collaborative workforce of intelligent, mindful and creative people willing to share ideas and support new enterprises. We have farmlands so fertile they are classified as of state significance and a burgeoning niche food industry ripe for innovative farmers to try new rural industries.

With the highest number of artists per capita in Australia there is no shortage of cultural activities in Tweed.

Sandwiched between the Gold Coast, Byron and Nimbin, the Tweed has a bit of the character of all of those famous towns but is like none of them. We are unpretentious and humble, but firm in our values and our deep respect for this very special place.

We warmly welcome all those who share our core values, and especially those who can help us on our path to zero emissions, zero waste, environmental regeneration, and an exciting sustainable and ethical economy.

If that sounds like you, we really hope to see you soon.

The Tweed offers natural advantages for sustainable and ethical business.

Our commitment to our core values is what sets us apart from other regions.

What we value

We look after people and our places, explore all opportunities and are proud of our passionate approach.

We care about each other, choose to be here and are in this together.

We have conversations where everyone can contribute and we are willing to have a go.

We put back in to make a difference, so that our Tweed community is even better tomorrow than it is today.
