Beachfront Camping on the Tweed Coast
With the tail end of winter racing to a close, the promise of springtime is in the air. As we begin to emerge from our hibernation, beachfront camping on the Tweed Coast feels less like a far-off dream and more like a reality to begin planning. There is just something about a coastal holiday that is the ultimate reset button. Maybe it’s the rhythmic sound of the waves lapping at the shore that provide a calming soundtrack to your holiday or perhaps it's filling your lungs with fresh air, whatever the cause the beach undeniably inspires you to enjoy a simple and relaxing break outdoors.
From the humble tent to beautifully decorated cabins and everything with four wheels in between, Tweed Holiday Parks Pottsville South is classic waterfront camping at its finest. Running adjacent to the tidal Mooball Creek, the park is as close as you can get to the water without getting your hair wet. Our Osprey and Pelican cabins are fully equipped with full-sized kitchens, linen on all the beds and air-conditioning so all you need to do is hop in the car and head our way. From the covered deck, there are uninterrupted views of the creek and a flat grassed area where the kids can play under your watchful eye. The township of Pottsville is only a short stroll from the park and is flush with cafes, restaurants and a great playground. Phillip Street Reserve is located directly behind the park where markets are held on Sundays. Shop for local produce and enjoy cooking up a feast in the camp kitchen or on the park barbeques. The tidal creek is an optimal spot to launch kayaks and stand-up paddleboards or just float around and enjoy the weightlessness of the warm salty water.
Tweed Holiday Parks Hastings Point will take you back to your childhood memories of camping by the water, fishing and building sandcastles.

Those who love to cast a line can make their way upstream and try their luck amongst the mangroves, to the river mouth for beach fishing or to the headland for rock fishing with spectacular views.
