New gourmet attractions on the Tweed Coast

I've always enjoyed the Tweed Coast; less frenetic than the neighbouring Gold Coast with a relaxed, laid back lifestyle.

The Tweed has just unveiled several new attractions for the summer holiday season, including glamping by the sea, new picnic experiences and a brewery tour. 



Opening this month is what is billed as "an Australian first" - a glamping by the sea experience at Cabarita Beach. 

The Hideaway is a boutique outdoor resort built in natural bush surrounds with views to Mount Warning.

The Hideaway aims to cater for families, romantic escapes, wellness retreats and team-building getaways, which seems a rather ambitious range.

The experience is communal with en-suites and a communal kitchen along with bean bag chill zones and fire-pit circles. See www.hideawaycabaritabeach.com.au.
Combining the elegance of traditional picnics with little luxuries is the ethos of Blue Ginger Picnics, who clearly prefer blondes for their promotional pics (below).


Think baskets of sparkling wine, rustic bread with artisan cheeses and a snap-worthy setting on a Tweed beach, creek or mountain location.
There's a menu for brunch, lunch or sunset, all featuring local and seasonal produce with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. www.bluegingerpicnics.com.
Stone & Wood beers are linked with Byron Bay but the same team also has a large brewing operation in the Tweed (below).


Stone & Wood's second brewing facility in Murwillumbah is actually where most of the company's beer is produced. 
Now enthusiasts of this refreshing drop can take a tour of the 'Murbah Brewery' on a new half-day craft beer discovery tour with Mount Warning Tours. 

Tour goers will also learn about the history of brewing in the Tweed region and sample local craft beers at the Haven Bar Taphouse and the Pickled Pig Micro-Brewery, ending with a traditional pub lunch in Murwillumbah. www.mountwarningtours.com.au
