The natural choice for business

Tweed Coast

Kingscliff (including Salt)

Unlike many traditional seaside communities, Kingscliff has evolved into a vibrant beach holiday destination without losing its wonderful beach village character.

The esplanade features award-winning cafes and restaurants and charming shopping boutiques. The Kingscliff Beach Hotel, Cudgen Headland SLSC and the Kingscliff Beach Bowls club offer plenty of entertainment options each week.

Directly opposite the CBD, the stunning new beachfront Rowan Robinson Park attracts locals and visitors on any day of the week.

Coastal villages

Fingal Head offers some of the best experiences below the waves. Cook Island is a small volcanic outcrop offshore from Fingal Head and is a beautiful marine playground, as well as having significance to local Aboriginal culture. It is home to green and loggerhead turtles and a stunning variety of tropical and subtropical marine wildlife. Local businesses in this area benefit from the natural attractions on offer that draw people from all over the world.

Chinderah is one of the Tweed’s hidden treasures. It has expansive views at every turn and is a perfect hideaway for a little peace, relaxation, fishing and picnics in the riverside park or a quiet ale at the riverside pub. It is famous for some of the freshest local seafood you will find.

Casuarina is the perfect seaside escape. The streets are lined with contemporary homes that have famously redefined beach architecture. The community generally comprises young families wanting an active, healthy, outdoor lifestyle or empty nesters enjoying a year-round resort lifestyle.

Bogangar/Cabarita Beach is a pocket of paradise on the Tweed Coast. It is almost completely encircled by a nature reserve, lake and beautiful beaches. It has a laid-back beach village character and the locals commonly refer to it as ‘Caba’. With legendary surf breaks, unspoilt beaches and sheltered coves, Cabarita has been a paradise for surfers, sun seekers and holidaymakers for generations.

Hastings Point is almost entirely surrounded by water and holiday activities revolve around the famous estuary and ocean. From the top of the headland at you can watch the whales during June-November and take in amazing views along the Tweed Coast.

Pottsville is a picture-postcard vision of the quintessential seaside holiday destination. Caravans and tents line the banks of the creek where children splash around in the clear, calm waters while anglers cast a line from the nearby banks. It’s an easy stroll to the beach, shops and some great cafes and restaurants.
