Point Danger is where the Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse is located. Along the edge of the high peak, is a good walking trail with excellent views of Duranbah Beach and the Surfers. On a good clear day, you can see Surfers Paradise in the distance. Check out the Walk of Remembrance, which honours the ships and the brave men and women who gave up...more
This Memorial is located on Point Danger Lookout, the headland denoting the border of New South Wales and Queensland. This Lighthouse claims to be the first in the world to experiment with laser technology but the experiment - carried out in 1971 - proved unsuccessful and it returned to the more conventional mirrors, magnifying glass and powerful...more
Around the Tweed, you will be sure to spot some Birdlife.Seagulls just love to join you for lunch and Pelicans are always eager to see what fish you have caught. Sometimes, they even try to take it when it is still hooked on your line.Out in the Boat you got to see the Shearwaters diving into the water and catching fish this way. Too quick for me...more
Next to the Bridge that goes over the Tweed River, you will find the Tweed River boat hire. You can hire all types of boats from here, including a bbq boat that will take 8-10 people.Prices for "Tinnies" start from $60 for the 1st 2hours. You can also hire half cabins for the same price. It gives you a chance to get up close and personal with...more
This is an excellent lookout giving 360deg. views. You can see Mt. Warning, the Beaches, the Airport and the homes on the Canals. There is a lovely garden, with seating. If you are wheelchair bound, all you need is somebody with the strength to push you up to the top. This is a lookout that shouldn't be missed when in Tweed Heads.more
I don't know the name of this look-out. It is located in Coolangatta at the end of Marine parade. Take the steep drive up the hill ( Garrick street), this will take you to it. At the top is a sculpture of an Eagle, there is also a picnic shelter, and hot water is available. You get excellent views over Greenmount and Coolangatta Beaches.more
Rainbow Bay is a controlled Beach, which means that there are Lifesavers there incase anybody gets into difficulties when swimming. You swim between the flags, and all is well. It is a nice spot, and when the tide goes out, as in my photo, there is some shallow water for the children to play in. Photo was taken during school holidays on a HOT day.more

Latitude 28 is a modern looking café and bar located at Point Danger, on the border of QLD and NSW (between Coolangatta and Tweed Heads). It sits just across from the cliff top lookout, which offers fabulous views up to Surfers Paradise.The day we visited Point Danger was overcast, and after a little while spent enjoying the view it began to rain....more

A round-trip scenic drive to MOO country, the town of Mooball, where the power poles are painted black & white, there a funny signs, and a cafe with 'Cow' things for sale.
Start the journey at Tweed Heads and follow the river, calling in at Tumbulgum, there is a good Hotel here. It is a very popular spot for water skiiers.
Murwillumbah has an info centre on the main road. Continuing onto Mooball, the Cafe has lots of Cow things inside, and does good meals.
You can cut across to the coast and Pottsville from here, and follow the beautiful coast road back to Tweed Heads. Pull in at the lookouts, often you see pods of Dolphins.
Any of the backroads afford beautiful views.
HOO ROO FROM MOO MOO!
