Explore: What I love about our area is the sense of community. There’s a genuine gratitude and appreciation from all those who choose to build a life here. The magic blend of quality weather, local infrastructure, diverse geographic beauty, services, clubs, expertise, opportunity and education means the Tweed has it all — we are so blessed to call it home.

Sip: Being so close to my workplace, I’m a regular at Osteria for coffee and a bite to eat. When unwinding after work, I can also be found here enjoying a glass of wine or a gin with friends and then cycling home. Otherwise, I’ll be quite happily sitting on a beach chair down on the sand with girlfriends watching the ocean at sunset.

Eat: My favourite home meal is to gather family and friends to BBQ seafood, fresh from Chinderah, and create a huge salad with local produce. Restaurant favourites are Fins, Bombay Cricketers Club or Taverna at Kingscliff. Breakfast at Tucker is also a favourite. There’s no better picnic spot than Cabarita Headland or Hastings Point, especially during whale season.

Shop: I always try to support local business owners and tend to stick to Pottsville, Kingscliff, Cabarita or Murwillumbah for clothing, gifts and homewares. Dune at Pottsville is always a favourite and when interstate friends visit, I take them to a local market so they can experience the sights, foods and talents of our community.

Do: For a weekend at home, simplicity is my greatest pleasure so, if not at the beach running and surfing, you can generally find me riding a bike along the beach path for a swim at Kingscliff Creek, reading a book or listening to a podcast under a beach umbrella or catching up with family and friends at a local café, bar or restaurant.
