Council does not permit the lighting of fires on Council controlled land, this includes beaches.

Members of the public wishing to use one of the Tweed beaches for recreational business purposes should contact Council for the appropriate permit.

For information about weddings or events on beaches see Parks, Gardens and Reserves.

For information about filming on a beach see Filming

For more information about beach access and permits please also see Vehicle Permits.

Horses may be ridden on beaches where there is no signage stating that this activity is prohibited. This also includes coastal creek areas. However horses are not permitted in areas that are patrolled by surf life saving associations and where there are areas of high pedestrian traffic. Riders are also requested, where possible, to remove and dispose of any manure that may be deposited in a public place. Council anticipates the cooperation of all equine clubs and horse riders in these matter and favours self regulation as the most effective form of control, however, failing to comply with the above request may result in Council undertaking alternative measures to assist in regulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I scatter the ashes of my loved one at the beach?
This practice is allowed throughout the Shire. 
However, customers are advised that it is their responsibility to ensure that the general public are not impacted or affected by the ashes being scattered (ie. be mindful of wind and it's direction before scattering of ashes) and that ashes are not scattered in the vicinity of bathers or beach users.
