Visit Kingscliff - Best of Kingscliff

Kingscliff is a coastal town just south of Tweed Heads in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, and is part of Tweed Shire. At the 2006 census, Kingscliff had a population of 6,016 people. Kingscliff is a beach community offering a variety of holiday accommodations. Together with the villages of Chinderah and Fingal, it is a tourist destination that provides beach and estuary access for swimming, surfing, fishing and water sports. Its main street, Marine Parade, contains many cafes, shops and accommodation located directly across from Kingscliff beach and creek. The town also contains two primary schools and a state high school. An oceanway allows pedestrians and cyclists to move from the historic centre of town out to the emerging new communities along the Tweed Coast in a sustainable manner. Kingscliff was the home to Peter and Jeremy Oxley who formed the 1980s band, The Sunnyboys. A scene from the movie Aquamarine was filmed on Marine Parade in late 2007. The main Kingscliff beach has been severely affected by erosion, with portions of the caravan park and beachside carparks being threatened or reclaimed by the sea. In December 2014, the state environment ministry announced it would split the $300,000 cost with Tweed Shire of an environmental impact study for a plan to build a 500-metre seawall and fill in the beach with imported sand.
