Tweed marketed as weekend escape

TWEED'S beautiful beaches, bountiful rainforest and booming artistic culture will go on show in Queensland's capital next weekend.

Destination Tweed CEO Bill Tatchell said the organisation would aim to boost the area's major industry at the Brisbane Holiday and Travel Show.

"Tweed will be promoted to Brisbanites as the perfect weekend escape," Mr Tatchell said.

"We are only across the border but, here in Tweed, it feels like you are a world away from the city.

"When you turn away from the beach you are faced with beautiful lush trees not buildings.

"It is so relaxing here that you would never guess we were just over an hour away from the city of Brisbane."

Mr Tatchell said Tweed would be promoted as an excellent destination for travellers young and old the world over.

"Our little bed-and-breakfasts, amazing beaches, rainforest, surfing, fishing, art galleries and everything else Tweed has to offer will be on display at the show.

"Tweed has so many attractions, a fantastic climate and lovely people so we want Brisbanites of all ages to know about us.

"After all, who wouldn't want to get away from the hustle and bustle in Brisbane to visit the relaxed area of Tweed?"

The Brisbane Holiday and Travel Show runs April 14-15 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank, from 10am-4.30pm each day.

This free exhibition will feature representatives from popular and well-kept secret Australian and international tourism destinations.
