“We stayed at Boyds Bay (a little way up the Terranora Inlet, which flows into the Tweed) which is a full five-minute drive from Durranbah Beach, where the Tweed River meets the sea. We ventured at least half that distance, on a few occasions.
Tweed Coast Holiday Parks Boyds Bay is idyllic. Set out in oval-shaped avenues of increasing sizes, its centrepiece is the shaded resort pool and barbeque area, where we spent most of our spare time. Temperature regulated (the pool is heated in winter and cooled in summer), we were never alone wallowing in the clear water, enjoying the shrieks of kids coming down the waterslide or the sun glinting through the palms. It was so refreshing we’d come back here in between just about every activity we did – have breakfast, jump in the pool; grab a coffee, come back to the pool; go for a swim in the river, follow it up with a swim in the pool. It never got monotonous. I wondered, at least once, if I could write a whole article about sitting around a pool.”
