Most people venture to Tweed Heads for the beaches. With warm weather, sunny days, and beaches like Cabarita Beach close by, you’ll find yourself wanting endless beach days while you’re here.
Cabarita Beach is unlike any other. It’s known for its beautiful views, stunning surf, and relaxed, laidback lifestyle. It sits in a small coastal village, and the 3000 residents all have a unique lifestyle while staying here. Make sure to visit during the winter months to watch the annual whale migration in the Pacific Ocean; a local pastime for many, it’s certainly surreal to see the humpbacks breach and play as they swim past.
Once you’ve started your day with a swim or a surf, head to Zeta’s Coffee for a morning brew and maybe some breakfast. There’s also Ben’s Patisserie in Murwillumbah, which is known for the fantastic croissants, or Baked at Ancora, where you can enjoy stunning views as you sip your coffee.
Now for those that want a day away from the beach, head to Wollumbin National Park. Tweed Heads is the gateway to this incredible rainforest. Home to Mount Warning, this is a sacred spot for the Bundjalung people. Get out into nature and walk through the oldest tracks in the world as you climb up to one of the many viewing spots. When at the top, enjoy the awe-inspiring view of the sub-tropical rainforest, which is one of the oldest on earth.
Tweed Heads is an excellent spot for a road trip. This is because it sits both on the border to Queensland and is in and amongst some beautiful surf towns of northern New South Wales.
Just a 45-minute drive south, Byron Bay is a surf town unlike any other. Head here in your Thrifty rental for an exciting day trip. Famed across the world for its chilled-out beach vibes, delicious restaurants, and excellent surf, Byron has fans all over the world that love to embrace the vibes here. Drive down for morning by The Pass, a hike up the Lighthouse, and the afternoon by Byron Main Beach. Maybe then head for a spot of dinner at Bang Bang, or start the dining options early with an afternoon lunch and drink at Rae’s by Watego Drink.
Tweed Heads is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. Take a trip to the rainforest for a spot of adventure, enjoy endless beach days at Cabarita, or head down to Byron Bay for a chilled-out day by the surf. However you choose to spend your days, you know that this will be a holiday to remember, with Thrifty. We can’t wait to meet you soon, at Thrifty Tweed Heads.
