The Tweed Region is known for its quirky charm and network of friendly, local communities. Stretching from the coast to the hinterland, it encompasses a huge range of stunning scenery. You can start your day with a surf at the beach and then end it by exploring the 400-year-old trees in the stunning rainforest area. And its natural beauty makes it the perfect place to enjoy outdoor activities like kayaking, fishing and bush walking.
But one of the most unique experiences you can have in the area is to jump on a tour with Catch a Crab. These guys have won heaps of awards for their crabbing adventure tour, which will have you trapping live mud crabs in the beautiful Tweed River. You’ll also visit an oyster farm, pump for yabbies and you can stay on for a delicious seafood spread at the Lakeside Café. It’s fun, food and adventure for the whole family!
Then, if you’re looking for an extra special place to stay when you’re in the Tweed, check out Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat. Perfect for a romantic getaway, this adult’s only retreat is located just a 20-minute drive from Murwillumbah, in the beautiful hinterland. Private and secluded, the property is surrounded by 250 acres of rainforest and there are 13 luxury bungalows on site.
