Kirra Beach – Tweed River Cruises – Coates Hire Coolangatta Gold

Kirra is such a beautiful part of the Gold Coast to visit.  It is relaxed and located on perhaps the most stunning stretch of coastline the Gold Coast has to offer, perfect for a walk or a swim. If you are after something a little different on your next trip why not go for a Rainforest or Crab Catching Cruise down the Tweed River. To get the adrenaline pumping or to support and cheer on our surf life saving champions, you can’t miss the Coates Hire Coolangatta Gold!  There is so much to do and see, and Kirra Beach Apartments are central to it all and just minutes from the airport.

Kirra is lucky enough to be walking distance (or a short drive) from four of the most beautiful beaches the Gold Coast has to offer. There is Kirra, Coolangatta, Greenmount Beach and the famous Snapper Rocks (host to the Quicksilver Pro held earlier in the year). You could spend your entire holiday on these four beaches and never run out of things to do.

Walk along the stunning coastline where you can see the Gold Coast skyline in the distance, meander through the rainforest between Coolangatta and Greenmount, take photos, read a book, go for a swim, have a surf (or learn at one of the many beachside schools).

There are dozens of restaurants and cafes along the stretch between these beaches, many with ocean view dining or perhaps a picnic on the beach with fresh fish and chips?

Tweed River Cruises
If you’re looking for something a little different, why not go for a cruise down the Tweed River, it’s just a short drive from Kirra. Hire a boat for yourself and go exploring, or join a cruise.

Two of the most unique cruises are the Rainforest and Crab Catching cruises. The first allows you to see the rainforest that lines this river from a new perspective, and learn more about this incredible eco-system, or for those who like to fish and love seafood, why not try a crab catching tour? You’ll get to fish, try your hand at yabbie pumping  and catching mud crabs. Finish the trip with a freshly cooked mud crab as well as any of the fish that you caught. Great for all ages, and definitely an experience you’ll remember.

Coates Hire Coolangatta Gold
