Tweed Region School Holiday Events
From beachside babycinos – to lazy afternoon lawn games – here’s your go-to guide to keep the kids happy over the school holidays, here in the Tweed region.
There’s nothing worse than the idea of the kids being cooped up at home on the school holidays, staring at a screen for hours on end. It’s time to get outside and enjoy all the Tweed region has to offer over the school holiday season!
Tweed City Shopping Centre
There’ll be an an array of family-friendly activities this summer at Tweed City’s outdoor recreation space The Cove, including kids tee pee village swings, giant lawn games and daily prizes and giveaways.
Stick around for some dinner in the evening at one of the boutique outdoor eateries at The Cove and watch it come alive with an awe-inspiring LED light swings and pop-up entertainment (including FREE live music).
Tweed City Shopping Centre’s Swing into Summer zone will be open each day from 11am until late right up till December 23.
For a day-out the whole family can enjoy, pop down to Kingscliff Markets for their last event of the year on Saturday, December 22 – sure to go out with a bang!
Ideal for a last-minute Christmas gift that is certain to be unique, or even a little treat for you, head down to Jack Bayliss Park, Marine Parade, Kingscliff from 7am – 1pm, set against the gorgeous backdrop of Kingy beach.
Kingscliff Markets features an incredible array of fresh produce, gourmet food stalls, arts & crafts, fashion, jewellery, fresh flowers and gifts the whole family can enjoy.
After taking a stroll around and having a browse, why not grab a delicious bite to eat and take a picnic rug down the beach and enjoy the sunshine!
Summit Mount Warning
For an outdoor adventure you won’t soon forget, be sure to tackle the Mt. Warning summit for spectacular 360 degree views stretching from The Gold Coast to Byron Bay.
The 8.8 km, five hour return walk through the subtropical and temperate rainforests culminates with a challenging rock scramble before reaching the summit, the perfect place to picnic before heading back down again – recommended for all ages of moderate fitness levels. For those short on time (or keen for a more leisurely stroll), check out the Lyrebird Track – which crosses Breakfast Creek before winding some 200m through lush palm forests to a platform set amongst the breathtaking tropical rainforest.
Tweed by River
For a picturesque family adventure, we recommend heading down to the Tweed River for a day on the water.
Whether it be a full houseboat holiday, or a burn around in a bbq boat, time spent on the sea often proves to be family memories to cherish.
Go green at just the thought of leaving dry land? Perhaps simply sitting down to enjoy some fresh seafood or fish and chips better fits the bill.
Sip and Surf
For the most breathtaking coastal views in the Tweed, take a drive up to Point Danger and check out Snapper Rocks (and spy Surfers Paradise in the distance).
Follow the timber boardwalk down and explore Froggy’s, a private patch of beach protected from the wind. Spot the painted frog on the rock as you pass by and you’ll know you’re in the right place!
Then pause for a family picture in front of the Captain Cook Memorial, before taking the groms to try the wares at one of Coolangatta’s trendy cafes.
