The Park is located on the southern side of the Tweed River on the Terranora Inlet section. The Park is a block (200m) off the river, with a boat ramp about 700m metres to our west.
We are 5-10 minutes’ drive from the Twin Towns of Tweed Heads / Coolangatta. Try out the great beaches, walks, parks and restaurants of Coolangatta.
The M1 freeway runs along behind the park although access is only available from the Kennedy Drive or Kirkwood Rd exits north or south of us. See the map above.
We are 7kms from Coolangatta airport. This is great if you’re flying in or out, however we do experience some noise from planes in the park.
Take the M1 north to Gold Coast’s Theme parks (approx. 45mins) or south to Brunswick Heads (30 mins), Byron Bay (50mins) and Ballina (1 hour).
We’re also a day trip to the Gold Coast hinterland of Springbrook and Lamington National Parks (approx. 1 hour).
Directions to the Park:
From North – QLD/Brisbane:
Take the Tweed Heads/Coolangatta Exit just after exiting the airport tunnel. Straight ahead through lights. Turn left once off the downramp into Kennedy Drv and follow the Tweed River for 800m.
You will see a bridge. You need to go under this bridge and over it (requiring a left hand 270 degree looped turn). Once over the bridge, proceed to the next set of lights where you can see a Tweed Billabong sign and you turn right.
Straight ahead along the south bank of river, following the signs for approx 1.2kms and then turn left into Holden St.
From South – Sydney/Ballina:
Stay in the left lane when coming over the River and Sexton’s Hill. Take the 2nd exit which is South Tweed Heads. This takes under the new bypass bridge, and through the roundabout onto Minjungbal Drive. Stay on this road and follow it past the Tweed City shopping centre.
You will pass McDonalds and the South Tweed Tavern on the left. Turn left at the next set of traffic lights into Dry Dock Road (this is the 6th set of lights once off the freeway). Follow the river for approx 1.2kms and turn left into Holden St.
