The natural choice for business

Accommodation & food services

THE TWEED’S PROXIMITY AND EASE OF ACCESS TO THE GROWING POPULATION OF SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND HAS ENSURED A DECADE OF SUSTAINED AND CONSISTENT GROWTH – HIGH ABOVE THAT OF OTHER COASTAL LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREAS IN NSW.

The beautiful natural environment and ability to disperse tourism across a wide area makes the Tweed feel less crowded than its well-known neighbours and will continue to be an attractive escape. This consistent growth in visitor numbers has helped make hospitality our fourth largest sector.

Our low-key, highly attractive region is an emerging ‘must do’ destination for domestic markets, as well as selected international markets, due to a distinctive offering that is easily accessible.

Consistent growth in visitor numbers has helped make hospitality our fourth largest sector.

Australia’s fifth busiest airport sits on our border and is expected to almost triple its arrival numbers over the next 20 years, so the prospect for growth in high-yield international and domestic visitation is very strong.

The domestic hubs of Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, and international hubs such as Auckland, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Tokyo, are all accessible from Gold Coast Airport.

To capitalise on this potential, the Tweed has a strategic focus on growing both the business and private events sectors. Existing and planned product, a range of quality services and culinary experiences all contribute to the appeal of the Tweed.

There is significant scope for growth and investment in a variety of accommodation and food service businesses. The Tweed is attracting and developing some of Australia’s finest chefs and awarded restaurants.

Our fertile volcanic soil is renowned for fresh, flavoursome and interesting produce all year round. The local trawlers bring in fresh seafood daily, while farmers’ markets scattered throughout the region bring their produce directly from paddock to plate.
