Follow the Tweed River from the mountains to the sea

The Tweed River flows from Mt Warning to The Tweed Coast, passing through World Heritage Rainforest, picture perfect countryside and down to meet The Pacific Ocean. The sunrise climb to the top of Mt Warning is a popular pilgrimage for many keen bush walkers, as this is the first point to see the sun in Australia. Hosanna Farmstay is a great child friendly place to stay, which is located near the base of Mt Warning.

Stopping at the classic country towns of Uki, Tumbulgum and Murwillumbah are features of any visit to the Tweed Valley. Many visitors come especially to the laid back village of Uki to experience the monthly Uki Buttery Bazaar Markets. Murwillumbah is the largest town in The Tweed Valley and has plenty of shops and cafes to keep visitors entertained, however the main highlights are The World Heritage Rainforest Centre and The Tweed Regional Gallery. The art gallery itself has a fantastic modern cafe with views to Mt Warning and the Tweed River. The gallery is also home to The Margaret Olley Art Centre, which has inspiring interactive exhibits and the recreation of Margaret Olley's home is something truly unique to see.

Following the river downstream, Tumbulgum Tavern is an ideal spot for lunch. The "Tumby Pub" opened in 1887 and offers great pub meals and unspoiled views of The Tweed River. Be sure to check out the replica of the famous Tumbulgum Groper - an 800 pound fish caught onsite in 1828. Finally, there are many beautiful beachside towns along The Tweed Coast, starting with Fingal Head Lighthouse in the north, then Kingscliff, Hastings Point, Cabarita and Pottsville in the south. The Tweed Maritime Museum is a great way to finish off a tour of The Tweed Valley and an interesting place to learn about the history of the region.

Great article - I love the Tweed Valley. I prefer to go there for family holidays than further north from Brisbane. Weather seems to be much nicer even in Summer.
