In The Tweed Valley, discover country cabins with a difference at Avion Retreat, where luxe glasshouse lodgings reflect the surrounding green landscape and seem to disappear from view.

With heart-stopping views of Wollumbin Mount Warning, from both its cottages and divine infinity pool, La Rocher invites stillness for couples seeking to restore and reconnect. Positioned for sunset, the cabins include a double-sided wood fireplace (one to watch from bed, the other from your deck), an inviting bathtub and pillowy beds perfect for alarm-free days. 


Indulge in award-winning flavours created from local produce at restaurants and cafes with both wellness and your taste-buds in mind, from fruit-filled breakfasts and sustainable dishes to farm-to-plate goodness. 

A delicious way to start any day is at Cubby Bakehouse where fresh-baked breads, pastries and cakes tempt, enjoyed in the warm cafe or under dappled light in the garden, surrounded by flowers and views of the Tweed River.

As well as sleeping well and eating local on your luxe wellness escape, The Tweed has endless things to do, from outdoor fun and day spa delights to creative play that’s healthy and tasty. 

Combining gentle movement, meditation and tranquil floating moments, Watersports Guru’s Mindfulness in the Mangroves is a must for those seeking deep calm and connection with nature. Aboard a stand-up paddle, cruise along a peaceful inlet to arrive in a cocoon-like nest of mangroves, where you’ll float, protected beneath a canopy, listening to bird call, ocean roll and a calming guided mediation practice.

If a bit more movement is on your agenda, hire a bike and navigate the smooth and fun pathways of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, starting from Murwillumbah. Explore sweet country villages, cross historic bridges and ride through old tunnels, visit the Tweed Regional Gallery, pick up local produce from farms and grab coffee and lunch along the way.
