Take a Tweed hinterland drive

12 June, 2020

Journey beyond the Tweed’s famous coastline to immerse in our green country landscapes, ancient forests, creative communities, farm-grown goodness and warm local welcomes.

From river flow to valley vibes, the Tweed’s gorgeous hinterland will inspire and enrich with galleries and distilleries, fresh made foods, deep valleys and mountain peaks, rainforest retreats and a history as old as time itself.

Compact and easy to navigate, a drive holiday to the Tweed’s inland villages and vistas delivers an abundance of things to see and do, or simply a peaceful surrender to the fresh air, friendly ambience and unhurried pace of life found in our towns.

From foodies and hikers to creatives and culture-buffs, there’s a Tweed country trip just right for you, from overnight escapes to restorative stays. In between drive-days, retreat to a villa set deep in a forest, check-in at a restored art deco hotel or get amongst local life with a fun farm-stay experience.

Whether travelling solo, taking a romantic break, getting in some family time or catching up with a crew of friends, our tip: explore more of the Tweed on your next escape from the everyday.

To give you some hinterland holiday inspiration, we’ve created a series of suggested drive itineraries to tempt your preference, but it’s also easy to mix and match routes and experiences to style a journey that’s made just for you.

Take a drive to sample the region’s delicious food offerings from paddock to plate, immerse yourself in our inspiring arts scene or deep-dive into history from Indigenous stories to art deco streets. For nature-lovers, journey to discover Gondwana rainforest and walks that reward with panoramic views over an ancient shield volcano.
