Hundreds out for Easter

HUNDREDS of people have flocked to Tweed's creeks and beaches with unrelenting sunshine creating the perfect Easter long weekend weather.

At Kingscliff, Watersports Guru owner Tim Adams said the sun had brought the town's population to the water.

"We're flat out," Mr Adams said.

"Easter and Christmas is always our busiest time of year but we had people lined up for two hours yesterday waiting to hire the kayaks and snorkels.

"We've been playing Ultimate Frisbee and cricket, the weather is amazing."

Jack Evans Boat Harbour was just as busy with people setting up under the trees and plenty of kids out on the water.

Trevor "Big Trev" Arbon, owner of Big Trev's Watersports, said he hoped parking inspectors wouldn't ruin an otherwise perfect weekend.

"We're getting pumped, there's people everywhere," Mr Arbon said.

"The only disappointing thing is the council giving parking tickets to everyone parked up on the grass.

"It's really sad, we try to get the people here to Tweed and then they walk away with a $100 parking fine, it's just not fair.

"I hope people still come back, but I'm not sure they will."

Big Trev's Watersports will be open at Jack Evans Boat Harbour every day this school holidays.
