Tweed Heads is an anomaly in the vast tapestry of suburbs and towns which is the City of the Gold Coast. It is situated in New South Wales and while Tweed Heads and its twin town of Coolangatta sprawl across the border between New South Wales and Queensland there is one humorous distinction. Apart from the peculiarity, both towns blend together to a point where it would be difficult for the tourist to say when they are in one location and when they have travelled to the other.
It is quick to get into Tweed Heads. It is around 9 hours drive from Sydney or 80min drive from Brisbane or can take a 10-minute drive to Gold Coast Airport or a one-hour drive to Ballina Byron Gateway Airport. It is 5 meters above sea level and is known as the Gold Coast’s southern extremity. You can find plenty of accommodation options, making the city a great base from which to explore The Tweed area.
