The Sebel Coolangatta is the perfect luxury Tweed Heads accommodation for your next holiday. Tweed Heads is an easy base if you want to head south to Byron Bay or the outlying areas south for the day or access all that the Gold Coast has to offer. Well known for its great beaches, shopping, restaurants, National Parks and the Theme Parks, it is the perfect holiday destination.
At the Sebel Coolangatta Apartments, located next door to Tweed Heads, we have luxurious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, all with views looking out to Coolangatta Beach. Higher apartments provide views looking out to Surfers Paradise, over Kirra Hill towards the hinterland, Mt.Warning, and the view north looks to the beautiful Coolangatta beaches.
The surfing in Coolangatta is legendary, whether you want to surf nearby on Kirra Beach, or take on the waves around at Point Danger or Snapper Rocks. There are quite a few other beaches in between and around that make notable waves too.
Quite apart from it’s reputation as a world class surf beach, Kirra Beach is the midpoint from which you can travel in either direction of the coast. Go north for 30 minutes and Surfers Paradise is before you. Travel further and the rest of the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast beckons. Travel south, actually just around the corner is Tweed Heads, the town that sits on the border of Queensland and New South Wales. Famous for occupying two time zones due to New South Wales observing daylight saving and Queensland not pushing the time an hour forward during the summer months. You may be walking down the street in Tweed Heads and cross the road into another time zone.
Head to Byron Bay for the day and discover its long history. Originally settled by the Arakwal Aborigine people, the Cavvanbah, meaning “meeting place.” The indigenous name has not lost its meaning either, with recent history adding further layers of meaning and memory. As early as the 60s, longboard surfers had discovered the natural breaks at The Pass, Wategos, and Cosy Corner. Soon after came the hippy colonisation of the nearby town of Nimbin. By 1973 and several music festivals later, Byron Bay had cemented itself in the psyche of Australia as the foremost alternative tourist destinations of choice. It is now a permanent fixture for a large number of artists, crafts people and alternative lifestylers.
Many festivals have become embedded in the Byron Bay calendar of events such as East Coast Blues & Roots Festival, Byron Bay Surf Festival, Splendour in the Grass and the Writers Festival. The area has also become an important mecca for pleasure seekers and exhausted urbanites seeking spiritual renewal.
