Well – what a wonderful time to be in our magical corner of the world … beautiful, clear, winter days and heaps going on!
This Friday (6th July) is the Kingscliff Night Market. Join us at Lions Park on Marine Parade from 4pm, and feast on our international food precinct, shop madly and then find a spot to chill to the live entertainment on the main stage.
As usual, there will be FREE face-painting for the kids, as well as the Petting Zoo for them to give (and receive) warm and toasty cuddles with all the little critters.
So make it a place to catchup with friends and family, and enjoy the ambience of our beautiful seaside location.
We are well into week 1 of the Taste Tweed – Winter Food Festival 2018 and it has been nothing short of fun and exciting! We’ve had a Pyjama Party, river cruises and a trivia night … and week 2 is shaping up to be even bigger and better.
Here’s what’s on the schedule …
The Season Lazy Long Lunch will be happening EVERY Saturday in July at 12:30pm. There will be a different ‘feature product’ each week, foraged from our local farmers and prepared by Executive Chef Craig ‘Robbo’ Robertson. This week’s feature is Cheesus Loves U. For just $50 per person, you will enjoy a welcome drink, local supplier tasting station and a mystery 6-course lunch served to share with your friends or family. To book, call (02) 6674 7766 or email the team at [email protected]

One of our favourite tours every year is The Taste Tweed Cycle Tour. Ride along the spectacular Kingscliff Foreshore & Tweed River bank towards Fingal Head Lighthouse. Soak up views of the Giants Causeway, Cook Island and watch for whales, dolphins and the vast array of local bird life. Head back to Kingsliff via Chinderah for a well-earned seafood tasting lunch.
