Forget the socks, hankies and chocolates this Christmas and gift some fun Tweed time instead with an experience to suit all in your friend and family clan.

Browse our inspo-filled Tweed gift guide for your festive season giving from art immersions and outdoor adventures to food and drink highlights and boutique store finds.

Wrapped up beneath the Christmas tree this year could be snorkelling with turtles, a life-drawing art class, dinner out at Australia’s best regional restaurant or a beachside getaway in a comfy cabin.

Read on for some thought-starters then head to our Tweed Gift Guide for more info.


Get the creative juices flowing for your nearest and dearest by gifting an artistic endeavour or a beautiful piece to hang.

Visit seaside Mist Gallery in Cabarita to find the perfect work of art that will bring a touch of the Tweed to any space, with a focus on local and regional artists and works ranging from paintings and works on paper to sculpture, ceramics and handcrafted jewellery. Insiders tip: You could also gift a booking at one of Mist’s regular art classes.

Unleashing inner artists is also the mission of the ARTribu crew, where classes are paired with food and drink at a local restaurant. Gift this one to a budding artist or experienced painter looking for a fun way to express themselves on canvas!

Help your loved ones to seize the day with an outdoor adventure, from time in the sea to cruising on a river or getting amongst the trees.

For the ocean-lover, a snorkel with turtles is sure to be a dream come true and the team at Watersports Guru is on hand to make this dream-gift a reality. Guaranteed to come face-to-face with friendly turtles just off the Tweed coast, you might want to gift this one to yourself as well!

If above water is more the go, snap up a gift voucher with Tweed Eco Cruises for their fun Bush Tucker and Crab Catching Cruise, the perfect family time together with pelican feeding, yabby pumping, fishing and bush tucker tastes all while cruising the Tweed’s stunning waterways.

Inspire your loved ones with a Plantation Safari tour at Tropical Fruit World’s, home to over 500 species of fruit and a vast green plantation. They’ll enjoy fruit tasting, learn about the history of the plantation and unwind in the beautiful natural setting. Or shop the Plantation Collection with natural skincare products, food products and wellness packs.

Help to ignite the imagination, elevate curiosity and spark joy with experiences to expand the mind and adorn the home.

Give a Tweed gift of learning with time spent at the Tweed Regional Museum where permanent and changing exhibitions provide insight into the area’s Indigenous culture, its creative history and innovative community. Housed in the original 1915 Shire Hall, the museum is home to the remarkable Land|Life|Culture interactive exhibition, a must to delve deeper into the stories of the Tweed’s people and places.

For the cinephiles in your family, shout a ticket to the latest films, arthouse picks and classic flicks at the historic Regent Cinema in Murwillumbah. This stunning and recently refurbished Art Deco theatre was built in 1947 and is a mecca for movie-goers as well as music-lovers with regular live gigs.

Wrap up a retro outfit or vintage book to pop under the tree at the eclectic Pulp Fiction in Murwillumbah – a treat to visit even for the gift-giver! Or shop with a conscience at Echora, a store specialising in sustainable, slow fashion, wellness goods and luxurious homewares.

Make merry with a flavour-inspired Christmas offering to satisfy all manner of taste-buds.

Book in your bestie or beloved at New South Whales’ newly minted Best Regional Restaurant (at the Good Food Guide Awards), Pipit in Pottsville. Owned by celebrated chef Ben Devlin and wife Yen, Pipit has forged new innovations in food with its focus on sustainable seafood, supporting local producers and cooking with wood-fire and charcoal. Insiders tip: You could also shout a ticket to Pipit’s incredible Squid Ink Art Class – see their socials to learn more!

Always a welcome gift is a Husk Distillery experience. The ground-breaking gin and rum distillery in Tumbulgum overlooks the Tweed River with views out to Wollumbin Mount Warning and is a feel-good place to be. Bestow a tour of Husk’s distillery, which includes ample tastings of the good spirits, and cap it off with a lunch booking at the cellar door (and maybe add a bottle of Ink Gin or Spiced Bam Bam rum!)
