Things to See & Do
Greenhills Caravan Park is a great base to explore the Tweed Valley, Tweed Coast, and beyond.
The region is a world class recreation and holiday destination, with the Gold Coast and glitter strip to the north. Explore the laid back feel of Byron Bay and Byron hinterland to the south, and the alternative lifestyle vibe of Nimbin, as you discover the ambience of quaint country villages, contrasting with the pastoral atmosphere of traditional rural towns.
As expected in a major town, you'll find the full range of retail, banking and medical services are available in Murwillumbah, with major shopping centres and services at Tweed Heads and Coolangatta, just 25 minutes travel time north.
There's easy access to seaside activities and watersports, fine dining, gold coast theme parks, colourful markets, and just about every leisure activity imaginable, not to mention the scenic wonder of nearby World Heritage listed national parks.
