About the neighbourhood
Pottsville is a hidden gem on the Tweed Coast of NSW. While here you can surf the waves at Cabarita Beach and Black Rocks; catch Bream or Perch at the Mooball Estuary; enjoy a sun-filled day basking on the beach; embark on a scenic bike ride along dedicated bike path from Pottsville to Kingscliff; or drive south to Brunswick Heads, Byron Bay, Lennox Head....or north to Salt Village, Kingscliff, Gold Coast (all just less than 30 mins away).

In addition, the Tweed Coast offers 37kms of natural coastline, wetlands and estuarine forests, lush pastoral and farm land, and the entire basin of the Tweed River. Combine this with mountainous regions containing three world-heritage listed national parks and you have paradise.
