Tweed Heads is a popular destination for travellers on the New South Wales coast just a short distance south of the border to Queensland, and much of the city's economy and infrastructure is shared with the neighbouring city of Coolangatta in Queensland. As a major Gold Coast suburb, you'll find numerous attractions suitable for the whole family in town along with several spectacular natural areas around the city's outskirts. Tweed Heads is spectacular to visit all year long, but around the New Year is particularly popular. Since New South Wales observes daylight saving time and Queensland doesn't, you can revel in midnight celebrations twice simply by crossing the street to change time zones. With a quality Tweed Heads accommodation, you can enjoy all of this and more.
Where to book your Tweed Heads accommodation
No matter what you're looking for in your holiday excursion, Tweed Heads can deliver. Within the city centre, you'll find restaurants and shopping centres along waterways like the Tweed River and Terranora Creek. On the eastern coast, you can enjoy sandy beaches while the western edge of town paves the way to the iconic Mount Warning. No matter where you book your Tweed Heads accommodation, you can expect luxurious comfort whether you're travelling with a partner or the whole family.
Booking accommodation by Fingal Head
On the eastern edge of Tweed Heads, you'll find the Tweed River followed by a strip of land before you actually reach the Pacific Ocean. The strip of land is called Fingal Head, and it's home to some of the most popular surf beaches in the area. Booking accommodation by Fingal Head will put the ocean just steps away from you where you can enjoy the smell of the sea air and the sound of waves lulling you to sleep at night. Some holiday rentals feature private walks to the beach and commonly include large balconies facing the water.
Finding accommodation by the Coolangatta border
Tweed Heads virtually merges with its 'twin town' of Coolangatta to the north having just a state border to separate them. This border area also effectively functions as the city's centre where you'll find chic cafes and high-end restaurants. Cross the Terranora Creek to the south and you'll find yourself in the Ukerebagh Nature Reserve bursting with vibrant flora and diverse fauna. Tweed Heads accommodation in this area offers both houses and apartments, but you'll find many apartment options, typically with 2-bedroom layouts, though there are some larger units available.
