About 50 kilometres, 30 miles north of Byron Bay just south of the New South Wales/Queensland border is Tweed Heads. Tweed Heads, population 55 857 is considered the most southern town of the Gold Coast with high-rise buildings, plenty of colourful advertising, clubs and gambling.

An Aboriginal culture museum demonstrates how the Bundjalung people used to live off this coastal stretch. A signposted boardwalk leads past an old bora ring which is a sacred site used in initiation ceremonies – a very special experience.
