TWEED Eco Cruises (TEC) is privileged to have its roots deeply embedded in a region the rest of our nation refers to as Australia's holiday playground. TEC, a second generation family owned and operated concern, is fully staffed by proud long-term Tweed and southern Gold Coast residents who are committed to promoting the region known as The Green Cauldron. Spruiking the NSW Northern Rivers' many assets is as easy as it is natural ... an area with a surf-laden coastline, nestled between international tourism drawcards Byron Bay and the Gold Coast and boasting 10 national parks on its western perimeter. Ecological delights are at every turn in a sub-tropical region laced with rainforests and loaded with fertile lands from its 23 million-year volcanic history ... and all under the imposing gaze of Mt Warning, the first place in Australia to welcome the morning sun! TEC proudly operates on the resource rich Tweed River, a 78km waterway with a highly-valued and respected influence on the v
