The bustling beach hub of Kingscliff has long been a mecca for that quintessential Australian seaside escape 

Full of fresh air, plenty to see and do, endless options to eat and drink and beachfront accommodation from 5 star resorts and boutique apartments to family-friendly holiday parks with front row ocean views. It's evolved as a visitor hot-spot while retaining a laidback, easy feel that's familiar, down-to-earth and generous. It's also remained a firm favourite for many a Tweed local in search of a morning coffee, sunset sip or that perfect wave.

Everything is close by in Kingscliff village, meaning full days of fun and adventure are easy. A day out in Kingscliff might start with a morning splash at Kingscliff Main beach or an easy bike ride along the sea-hugging cycle path that navigates a recently revitalised foreshore park.

Take your pick of morning coffee spots to find healthy local breakfast fare, al fresco seats with a sea view and barista bolt-holes right by the beach. Pop into the friendly Kingscliff Visitor Info Centre, just a skip from the sand, for local advice from friendly volunteers and to help map out the rest of the day.

Head to a local pottery studio for a guided wheel-class, browse and buy beachy homewares to create a Kingscliff vibe back home, book in for a soothing massage, try a round of lawn bowls or simply opt for a cooling gelato moment strolling the buzzing esplanade.

Catch a sea-breeze for lunch at the Surf Lifesaving Club or rub shoulders with the locals at one of the many cafes lining Marine Parade.

Choose an aquatic afternoon, from a surf lesson, snorkel with turtles or stand-up paddle along scenic Cudgen Creek, before easing into an evening of live music at the Kingscliff Beach Hotel. And that's just day one!

Add to this the iconic Kingscliff Beach Markets and a host of world class annual events, including the Kingscliff Triathlon (or Kingy Tri to the locals), and it's clear why Kingscliff is so loved and frequented by visitors and locals alike.

Overnighting is a must in Kingscliff to really soak up the local welcome and restorative vibe, with ocean view apartment and branded 5 star resorts on offer, alongside camping, glamping and cabin options at beachfront holiday parks.

Sleep sound too at the neighbouring Salt Village, with familiar five star resorts just a short step from rolling waves and a literal world of food, from seafood and Italian to Indian and Japanese.

Not to be missed at Salt Village is the oft-hatted dining experience at Fins, where owner chef Steven Snow (you can call him Snowy) has been serving line-caught fish, sustainable seafood and organic vegetables, sometimes freshly picked from his own garden, for over 30 years, carving out the Tweed's food reputation and becoming Australia's most awarded regional restaurant.

Voting open from 9:00 AEST, Friday 7 May 2021
