The natural choice for business

Tweed Heads and urban surrounds

As one of the ‘Twin Towns’ with neighbouring Coolangatta on the Queensland and New South Wales border, Tweed Heads is a regional city that offers a CBD business precinct, busy industrial area, marina, shopping, resort style accommodation and entertainment.

Jack Evans Boat Harbour and Twin Towns Services Club provide a welcoming presence as the gateway to NSW and the place to be to celebrate New Year’s Eve twice thanks to daylight savings. The ‘Tweed Mall’ shopping centre is a retail hub with surrounding areas featuring government and commercial offices and small business. Wharf Street and Minjungbal Drive connect commuters to the busy industrial areas of Tweed Heads South.

Tweed Heads South is separated by the Tweed River and Boyds Bay and comprises a large services trade commercial area and a regional shopping centre ‘Tweed City’ which services a customer base beyond the Tweed.

There is a smaller residential area within Tweed Heads South which also comprises several aged care facilities. The locality includes a high school, a number of primary schools and the region’s sport complex, Arkinstall Park.
