The Tweed's Cabarita Beach named Australia's best beach for 2020
It’s official, Cabarita Beach in the Tweed region of New South Wales is the best beach in Australia for 2020, according to Tourism Australia’s beach expert, Brad Farmer.
Taking the number one spot in Farmer’s anticipated top 20 national list, Cabarita Beach was awarded for its quintessential Aussie features, quiet coastal estuaries, picnic-perfect grassy knolls and long expanses of sandy shores.
The award is a timely accolade ahead of the summer holiday season and cements the profile of the Tweed as the perfect place for a beach getaway, according to the Tweed Tourism Company General Manager Bradley Nardi.
“To have Cabarita Beach named Australia’s best is a great recommendation for visitors to come and immerse in our beach culture on their next holiday.”
“As a base for visitors, Cabarita has it all from great accommodation choices, awarded dining, day spas, beach-view bars and casual cafes, all just a short step from the sand. There’s also stunning viewpoints such as Norries Headland, quiet family beaches and famous surf breaks.”
Known locally as Caba, the popular and picturesque Tweed beach is a drawcard for family fun, styled gourmet picnics, beach weddings and for surfers seeking the perfect wave.
The Tweed has long been recognised as a standout mecca for surfers with Surfing Australia’s High Performance Centre based in the region, training athletes to become world champions and aiming for success at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, where surfing makes its debut as an Olympic sport.
Kim Crane, National High Performance Director of Surfing Australia’s National High Performance Program, is based in the Tweed and rates the beach lifestyle in the region amongst the best in the world.
“The Tweed really is one of the most idyllic places to live and visit, so from a surfing high performance perspective the strength of our Australian beach culture is so important and, as a result, we have a rich pool of talent being developed in this region.”
“When I’m not working to support our elite surfers, I’ll be at the beach running or surfing, riding my bike along our beautiful beach paths or reading a book or listening to a podcast under a beach umbrella.”
Cabarita Beach topped the 20 best beaches list ahead of nearby Currumbin Beach (Queensland) and Minnamurra Beach (NSW), with a total of six New South Wales beaches making the grade.
