Tweed Heads is the headland that lies on the border of Queensland and New South Wales. The heads are at the mouth of the Tweed River, which was used extensively in the 19th century for the transportation of logging.
The entrance to the river is very dangerous, given the strong currents and tides and the constantly moving sand bars cause trouble with commercial and recreational boats alike.
Dunranbar, or D' Bar as it is known in the Surfing community, is one of the most crowded surf breaks on the Gold Coast and many of the world champions can be found paddling out from the beach here year round. Of course the ASP World Tourrecognise's the constant swell and hosts the annual Quicksilver Pro here each year.
