Tweed Shire Council


The Tweed covers a diverse area of 1300 square kilometres and is the largest Council on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia.  The Tweed has a broad and productive economy worth around $2.5 billion per year and a biodiverse environment that positions the Tweed with natural credentials and a strong advantage. The Tweed covers a diverse area of 1300 square kilometres and is the natural choice for our residents, business and visitors alike. Perfectly positioned between the economic powerhouse of the Gold Coast in South East Queensland and as a leader in the sought-after Northern Rivers region of NSW. The Tweed adjoins the NSW Local Government areas of Byron, Lismore and Kyogle, with the NSW/Queensland border to its north where it divides the twin towns of Tweed Heads and Coolangatta.

As the largest employer in the Tweed with a workforce of approximately 700 employees and a budget of $195 million, Tweed Shire Council is an essential part of our community every day, through the provision of more than 50 services to our 36,000 ratepayers and 90,000 plus residents who call the Tweed home.

Our Vision: The Tweed will be recognised for its desirable lifestyle, strong community, unique character and environment, and the opportunities its residents enjoy.
