As it is the first Friday night of the month – that means it’s time for the Kingscliff Night Market!

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.

This one sells out FAST – so book your spot here.
