A DECENT chunk of the illegal drug hash has washed up on Kingscliff Beach.

A man walking on the sand discovered a pipe canister with the 2.3kgs of cannabis resin inside yesterday.

The stash has a minimum estimated street value of $92,000.

"That's what we believe it to be," Tweed Police Inspector Brendon Cullen said.

"It floated into the beach on Sunday; police secured the area and examined the PVC pipe."

Insp Cullen said it wasn't unusual for items to wash up but it was the first that he'd seen since he joined the Tweed-Byron Local Area Command.

It is believed the canister originated from Australia and Insp Cullen said its unknown how long the canister was floating in the sea.

The canister will now be forensically tested and the drugs will be destroyed.
