Casuarina area profile
Casuarina Beach, developed in 2001, is one of the Tweed Coast’s newer beach communities. Located approximately 15 km south of the Gold Coast and positioned between the established beach towns of Cabarita and Kingscliff, Casuarina has exploded into a vibrant community of about 3 square kilometres.
Sometimes affectionately referred to as “Pleasantville” due it’s quiet neighbourhoods, friendly residents, and an obvious young family orientation, it is not uncommon to see kids and families gathered on driveways and front yards for impromptu barbeques on the weekend. With a resident population of over 2,678+ people (2016 census), young families and retirees were the initial residents. However, in the last few years, professionals have realised that the 15-minute drive to the Gold Coast Airport, and proximity to Gold Coast commercial precincts, makes Casuarina a great location that combines work and lifestyle.
Casuarina’s pristine beaches attract local fisherman, surfers and beach walkers, not to mention robust Australia Day beach cricket games! During the peak summer months, the “central” beach area is patrolled by lifeguards.
A recently completed neighbourhood retail hub includes a 2500sqm full-line Coles supermarket, along with 12 specialty stores and parking for 237 vehicles.
Casuarina is also home to Surfing Australia’s High Performance Centre, where many of Australia’s elite surfers undergo state of the art physical training and coaching. Adjacent to the centre is the Rec Club Rock Fitness Centre, a popular gym featuring swimming, boxing, yoga, Pilates and weight training facilities, personal training and classes. Casuarina is active!
Some of our favourites eateries include…..
Tucker - breakfast hotspot
Cubby Bakehouse - breakfast with Tweed River views
Farm & Co - organic fruit and veggies + coffee shop
Spice Den – Asian spices
Osteria – a favourite hub for locals and visitors alike
Black Oak – great coffee
Fins Restaurant (Salt Village)
Adjacent to Casuarina is the “Salt Village” community. Like Casuarina, Salt is a newer development established around 2005, and the two communities are linked by a bike and walking path along the beachfront, which continues all the way into Kingscliff – a well tracked walk for residents!
Salt Beach is a 1.2km stretch of pristine and uncrowded beach which is patrolled during spring and summer. Great for beach walks, fishing, surfing, or just relaxing. Salt Central Park, is the gathering area residents and visitors, and is situated between Peppers Salt Resort & Spa and Mantra on Salt Beach Central Park. The retail strip includes numerous restaurants, coffee shops and retail stores.
To its immediate south is Cabarita Beach, with its array of cafes, restaurants, boutiques, medical and dental clinic, a large Woolworths shopping precinct including essential amenity stores, SLSC and of course ‘The Beach Hotel’ (Local Pub). Patrolled swimming area is located directly in front of ‘The Beach Hotel’. Cabarita Beach has furthermore been complemented by the addition of Halcyon House – the Award-Winning Luxury 5 Star Hotel.
Just to the north of Casuarina and Salt you find the quaint but fast developing town of Kingscliff. Tourists will know Kingscliff for its old worldly beach town charm, with a bustling beachfront precinct offering numerous cafes, pubs, SLSC and retailers. Music lovers will know this as the home of the 1980s band members, The Sunnyboys. The ever-popular caravan park requires bookings at least 1 year in advance! Kingscliff also offers a strong commercial presence in the area, including solicitors, architects, library, banks, ambulance/emergency services, medical centres and TAFE.
For the outdoor and active types, check out the scuba trips to Cook Island, whale-watching tours, deep sea fishing charters and learn to surf schools. The annual Greenback Fishing competition is well known and attended. A visit to the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah is high on our list, if not for the love of art, certainly for the views from its cafe!
With access to Byron Bay only 30 minutes south, the buzzing town offers a great destination for day trips, with its plethora of watering holes and eateries. The nearby hinterland area including Mt Warning is approximately 30 minutes west with its famous climb. Some other great daytrips include a drive to Harvest Cafe in Newrybar, a visit to the FARM in Byron Bay or a drive to some of the amazing waterfalls along our coastal hinterland.
