Kingscliff Attractions

 

Attractions

Kingscliff, located on the Tweed Coast, is a beach side township that is a popular family destination providing beach and estuary access for swimming, surfing, fishing and water activities.

The Kingscliff Main Street Festival (known as the Art, Food and all that Jazz) is held each year in Winter. Of course the award winning restaurants and cafes are open for business most days.

Below are some local attractions and things to do in Kingscliff and surrounding areas.

Golden Door Spa

Golden Door Spa at Peppers Salt Resort is the largest resort spa run by Australia's leading health and spa operator, Green Door Spa.

Golden Door Spa at Salt offers world-class luxury spa facilities and a range of health and wellness programs to help you unwind, de-stress and rejuvenate. Enjoy spa treatments including massage, facials, body wraps, energy balancing, Vichy Shower, manicure, pedicure, hair salon and healing sessions.

Be sure to book at the Green Door in advance of your stay to guarantee availability of treatment.

Beach Activites

For a little more swimming, venture down to the Ocean beach, patrolled by the Salt Surf Life Saving Club. This is a popular destination for surfers, sun-lovers, people eager to do a little fishing, whether it be river or beach fishing, and those who just want a lazy, family holiday. The beaches in the Kingscliff area are particularly beautiful and far less crowded than the more popular beaches further north.

Markets

There are local farmers markets every second Saturday in the park on the Northern side of Kingscliff Bowls Club.

Kingscliff Bowls Club

Offers "barefoot bowls and brekky" every Sunday Morning for the novice or an ideal way to spend Sunday mornings.

Fingal Lighthouse

Also of interest is a walk up to Fingal Lighthouse. Park on the road just past the Fingal Trading Post and there is an easy walk along the sand tracks and up to the lighthouse, where Cook Island can be seen off shore. Also see the Giants Causeway caused when molten volcanic rock solidified as it was cooled by the ocean many years ago.

Mt Warning

Another pleasant walk (although a much more difficult climb) is the walk up Mt Warning (follow the signs from Murwillumbah). Allow yourself 6 hours for the climb and bring sufficient water and wear suitable walking shoes. The descent track is the same as the ascent track.

Byron Bay, Cabarita Beach, Hastings Point

The Tweed Townships are worth a look. Cabarita Beach has a lovely headland that you can climb, Hastings Point has a lovely inlet and headland able to be driven on with great views, and Pottsville Beach has a nice inlet and river. 40 minutes drive down the coast is Byron Bay which is another day trip worth considering.
