GET TO KNOW TWEED HEADS Tweed Heads is a city located on the Tweed River in north-eastern New South Wales, in Tweed Shire. Tweed Heads is located next to the border with Queensland, adjacent to its "Twin Town" of Coolangatta, which is a suburb of the Gold Coast. 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, and the fact that New South Wales observes daylight saving whereas Queensland does not. Tweed Heads was once connected to the Queensland Railways system, with the South Coast line providing a direct connection to Brisbane. Since then, the station has since been converted to parklands and commercial development development popular amongst local residents and tourists travelling between Queensland and New South Wales.
