LOVERS ROCK // TWEED HEADS

With a backdrop of rugged clifftops, pandanus trees and ocean views, Lovers Rock is a hidden gem nestled right on the QLD/NSW border in Tweed Heads. Conveniently situated close to an abundance of local accommodation options (and just a stone’s throw away from nearby venues such as Ancora), the space features a large grassed area overlooking the ocean – perfect for couples planning an open-air ceremony. You will require a permit, which can be easily obtained via the Tweed Shire Council.

HASTINGS POINT HEADLAND // HASTINGS POINT

If beachside vows are more your style, the Hastings Point headland is one of the best locations to showcase our beautiful coastline. Located just down the road from popular venues such as Osteria and Fins Plantation House, you can tie the knot with direct ocean views as your backdrop.

There are several grassed areas to choose from, and you’ll need to get in touch with the Tweed Shire Council to obtain a permit. For more information and to download a wedding application form, check out the Parks, Gardens and Reserves page here (and check out some of our fave local transport options to get your guests from A to B in style!).

Lions Park is the perfect location for beachfront ceremonies in Kingscliff. This secluded spot is surrounded by lush palms and pandanus trees, creating a relaxed coastal feel for your Tweed Coast ceremony – plus, walking distance from the amazing space at Babalou.

Lions Park is a public area, so you’ll need to obtain a permit from the Tweed Shire. For more information on securing your ceremony at Lions Park Kingscliff and to download a wedding application form, head over to the Tweed Council website here.
