We rented a small houseboat from this two boat show based out of Tumbulgum in northern NSW. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendlier. The boat is not spanking new but has everything you need. We fished and relaxed on the Tweed River between Chinderah and Tumbulgum for four days, they even let us bring the pooch.... More

This area is still very nice, although you are close to a very large city,there is a lot of wonderful wildlife. We hired a houseboat and went up river. The water was clean and clear.

A pleasant area to drive around with many places to stop (art galleries, cafes, river banks etc). Have not done the river cruise yet but wish to soon despite the not so good reviews here. The drive through the sugar cane fields is quite nice and a great contrast to the bustle of the Gold Coast

Good local art gallery and the new extension was interesting even if I didn't know the artist. They have a sister restaurant in the hills which has better food than the cafe.

We booked on to the River and Rainforest Tour. Half an hour after our expected departure time we were finally underway. The captain began his sparse commentary, asking us... More

At the Tweed, and heading by car into the hills to go to the Tweed River Regional Art Gallery, We've been there before and we will go again. The Gallery itself is beautiful and the exhibitions are always very interesting. The curator at the gallery does a great job. Always a wide variety of work and a good cafe and... More
