The natural choice for business

Education & training


The Tweed has 39 primary schools, 11 secondary schools, two TAFE campuses and Southern Cross University on our border with Queensland, making education an important contributor to our economy.

The Tweed has a thriving education sector with a wealth of quality primary and secondary schools, both private and public, that are equipping youth with the skills needed for the challenges of tomorrow.

Our TAFE college has had a 40% increase in apprentices.

Secondary schools nurture students who achieve at the highest level in national and international academic arenas. The region also has the highest concentration of artists anywhere in Australia, which is reflected in the quality of creative and performing arts programs that foster the early development of many creative professionals. This creativity is showcased at the month-long Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts (now in its 87th year), which draws competitors from far and wide.

The rapid population increase forecast for the Tweed has us poised for significant government and private investment to further grow this vital service sector.
