From the Queensland/New South Wales border there are many great coastal spots between Tweed Heads and Coffs Harbour. Hitch up your caravan, pack your tent or self-drive a campervan and head off to Northern New South Wales must see places. There is plenty to see so take your time crawling down the coast.
Just across the Queensland/New South Wales border is the coastal area known as the Tweed Coast. There are several beachside villages along this stretch of coastline that tend to get very busy over the summer holidays. Kingscliff, Casuarina Beach, Cabarita Beach, Hastings Point, Pottsville and Wooyung all have one thing in common, and that is gorgeous pristine beaches.
Most of them also have estuarine creeks that provide safe conditions for children and are perfect for families. Kingscliff has Cudgen Creek; Cabarita has the Cudgen Lakes; Hastings Point has Cudgera Creek and Pottsville has Mooball Creek. The creeks are sandy bottomed and are all tidal so are very shallow at low tide. They are all perfect for kayaking and canoeing.
All of the villages have a range of accommodation options from resorts, holiday units, cabins to caravan parks. The standout caravan parks are the KINGSCLIFF BEACH CARAVAN PARK (currently being renovated) located right on the beachfront; POTTSVILLE BEACH CARAVAN PARK located on Mooball Creek; and HASTINGS POINT CARAVAN PARK overlooking the beach and Cudgera Creek.
