Destination Kingscliff, Tweed Coast

 

Found on the New Tweed Coast, just north of Byron Bay and 15 minutes south of the Gold Coast,  Kingscliff is fast becoming a must see destination for Queenslanders and Australians alike.

Kingscliff draws thousands of visitors every year because of its relaxed holiday lifestyle and abundance of leisure activities available. The pristine and uncrowded two kilometre beach stretching from Cabarita to Fingal provides an adventure playground with surfing, swimming, rock fishing or even diving at Fido’s Reef or Cook. For those seeking an adrenalin charged adventure can try their hand at water sports on the nearby Tweed River or perhaps a relaxing fishing river cruise.

The main strip of Kingscliff, Main Parade is lined with trendy outdoor cafes sure to please all food lovers with each offering delicious cuisine and some of the best seafood in the region. 

Also close by is Mount Warning providing both volcanic soils, cultivating delicious tropical fruits in the region as well as an adventure fuelled activity with walking tracks from the base to the summit, providing spectacular views of Northern New South Wales.
