Cooly Rocks On

I'm going to be in the area for the start of the festival prob only the first day (31st May) just wondering if people have any experience of the festival:

Is there generally much on, on the 1st day / evening of the festival?

Is it mainly in Coolangatta or Tweeds Head

Any Accomm recommendations ?

Thanks, visiting from Ireland, so have no clue about the area at all :0

I would say that the majority of events occur in Coolangatta - but Tweed Heads is just a continuation of Coolangatta anyway.

I would look for accomodation in either Coolangatta or Tweed.

Check the program for what is happening on the first night:

I like in the area, and I think you'll find accommodation may be a little bit cheaper in Tweed Heads, as most of the Coolangatta accommodation is beachfront (more expensive).... if budget is an issue. Book now, as it's a popular time for people to visit.

It's only a couple of block's walk from the heart of Tweed Heads to Coolangatta Beach.
