EXTENDING ACROSS THE VAST BOWL OF THE WOLLUMBIN MT WARNING CALDERA, THE TWEED REGION IS CHARACTERISED BY ITS NETWORK OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES. Outside the main centres of Tweed Heads, Murwillumbah and Kingscliff, the quirky charm of the region is revealed in quiet country hamlets, historic river ports and seaside villages. Along the Tweed Coast, our seaside fishing villages have held onto the magic of a traditional Aussie beach holiday where you can swim at safe patrolled beaches, paddle a kayak up the creek, take the kids (or just yourself!) to a quiet fishing spot and enjoy a leisurely ride along the oceanfront cycle paths.

Towering over Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley in far north-eastern New South Wales, is Mount Warning, the central core of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest extinct shield volcano. Named "Wollumbin", meaning "cloud catcher", by the Bundjalung people who inhabited the region before European settlement, it is the first place on Australia’s mainland to be touched by the morning sun. A climb to the summit to watch the dawn of a new day is a must for the adventurous.
