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
