Scenic view of the Tweed River meandering through a beautiful landscape- Tweed River

The Tweed River

Flowing from the sea and weaving its way inland beside towns both peaceful and vibrant, the mighty Tweed River is a stunningly expansive waterway inviting exploration at every twist and turn it takes.

From bustling Tweed Heads to peaceful Tumbulgum, take a cruise, throw in a line, grab a paddle or simply sit riverside to breathe it all in. For your appetite, try a relaxed marina with impressive yacht views or traditional pub fare right beside the river. There are also local food markets, must-sip coffee shops and a gin and rum distillery offering tours, tastings and take-home bottles.
