Australia Facts ~ TWEED HEADS

Continuing with the series of the top ten most populated cities in Australia. 

The sixth most populated city in Australia is Tweed Heads. I learned some new things while researching.

This is a new city for me, never heard of it. But it is incredibly beautiful, as all of Australia seems to be.

1. Tweed Heads is on the far New South Wales coast on the Queensland border. Whilst here you should definitely walk out to Point Danger where you will be greeted by a large memorial for Captain Cook (the most famous explorer of Australia). The memorial marks the New South Wales and Queensland border divide, and you can actually stand in both states at the same time.

2. Point Danger Lookout is one of the most popular attractions in the Kingscliff/Tweed Heads region, the Point Danger Lookout enjoys beautiful views of the Duranbah surf beach. A historic lookout, Point Danger was named by Captain James Cook on his 1770 journey up the east coast of Australia to warn later mariners of dangerous coral reefs off this treacherous coast.

3. It is often referred to as a town where people can change time zones, even celebrate New Year twice within an hour, simply by crossing the street, due to its proximity to the Queensland border

4. Tweed Heads’ most popular tourist destinations includes Mount Warning, one of the largest shield volcanoes (a type of volcano usually composed almost entirely of fluid lava flow) in the Southern Hemisphere.
