Tweed Heads - Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse
Beaches & Coasts

Favourite Walks – NSW/QLD border

Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse Walking past the Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse forms part of my favourite trek on the Tweed…  I start near the Coolangatta Surf Club, and walk south around Greenmount. If tides are right you can walk on the beach. I normally stay on the path, I love how the path here is extra wide.  Walk past Greenmount Surf Club, there are a few viewing platforms on Greenmount – you can even walk right up to the top of it. Make sure you stop and watch the surfers. Views of Coolangatta Beach from Greenmount Follow the path or

Haslam SA - Under the jetty

Plan to visit Haslam, South Australia

We’d like to thank Kerrie Wall for sending us these beautiful images, and told us why she loved her stay in Haslam, SA. It was a short drive off the highway. It is a very, very quiet little spot with no shops or services at all, but it’s convenient to Ceduna or Streaky Bay. Population is about 60 most of whom are oyster farmers.  There is access to a public toilet and it has a dump point. Haslam relies on people’s honesty to leave the small site fee ($10) in the box. Like many coastal towns in SA it has a lovely jetty with

Traveller’s photo: 1770 Camping Ground, Queensland

Image Courtesy Rhonda & John Denney How good does this look? A big shout out to Rhonda and John Denney who said this photo was taken, “on our visit to the 1770 Campground in Central Queensland. It is our night dinner view from the café attached to the campground. It was just beautiful with a lovely light sea breeze on a warm night.” You are looking at QLD site 426 in Caravan Parks 5 or find it on your Camps Australia Wide App. This waterside park is not a pet friendly site, however, the Captain Cook Holiday Village (site 427)

Newly renovated: Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park

If you want beachfront, close to shops and just over an hour drive from Brisbane – book a site at Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park. It has been re-listed on our Camps Australia Wide App, after being closed for an extended time for renovations.  Kingscliff has become a lot busier than the seaside village I grew up near. But it still retains a charm, especially the access to the beach and the flatter shallows of Cudgen Creek. This is a wonderful spot for families, even if it is just a day trip.  This holiday park has the Bowls Club on one
