Official Visitors Guide

The Tweed Official Visitors’ Guide is your go-to for holiday information and inspiration, from accommodation and tours to getting around, dining out and drinking in the best of our region from coast to country.

We’ve curated some of the must-do holiday experiences, shared our tips for exploring the Tweed’s many villages, highlighted food, adventure, the arts and more and we also got the low-down from Tweed locals on what they love about living here.

Grab a copy of the guide from our visitor information centres or check it out online here.

Climate

Northern New South Wales enjoys a mild, year-round climate with highs around 30 degrees celcius in summer (December to February) and 20 degrees in winter (June to August). Overnight temperatures get as low as around 10 degrees in winter. Our wettest month is typically February with a sub-tropical wet season rainfall.

Sub-tropical conditions mean there’s a mild year-round climate to enjoy the great Tweed outdoors. Dive in to our beautiful beaches but be sure to check conditions at all times and remember to swim between the red and yellow flags on patrolled beaches.

Seasonality

Visitor seasons are aligned with major national holiday periods, sunny weather and school semester breaks. Accommodation rates and availabilities fluctuate with low, shoulder or high season periods.

  • Low season: April – September (may exclude school holidays)
  • Shoulder season: October – December and February – March
  • High season or holiday season: December – January and March – April

Patrolled beaches

Our beaches are gorgeous and inviting and best enjoyed in the right conditions and when safe to swim. Listen to the advice of our Surf Lifesavers at all times and swim between the red and yellow flags on patrolled beaches.

Check where to swim and current beach conditions before diving in – you can find up-to-date details at Beachsafe

Aboriginal Acknowledgement

The Tweed Tourism Company wishes to recognise the generations of the local Aboriginal people of the Bundjalung Nation who have lived in and derived their physical and spiritual needs from the forests, rivers, lakes and streams of this beautiful valley over many thousands of years as the traditional owners and custodians of these lands.
