Fingal Head

Fingal Head is a coastal village just South of the Tweed River mouth in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. It lies on a long finger of land with the ocean on one side and the Tweed River on the other. If coming from Queensland take the first left off the M1 once over the Tweed River. 

Fingal Head is known for its picturesque location on the Pacific coast, and for its relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. The town is a popular destination for surfers and other beachgoers, and is surrounded by beautiful beaches, parks, and nature reserves. The Fingal Head Lighthouse, which offers sweeping views of the ocean and surrounding coastline, is also a popular attraction.

What’s special about Fingal Head?

Fingal Head Causeway, the basalt outcrop of the headland itself, the lighthouse and Cook Island just a few hundred metres offshore is a visual spectacle.

It’s just over the border from Queensland and is a quick 5 minutes drive from the motorway.
