Pottsville is a quiet coastal village in the Tweed Shire, in Northern NSW, located approx. 30 kms south of the Queensland border. In the 2011 census, Pottsville had a population of just under 6,000 people. Pottsville, along with many of the small towns in the area, has experienced rapid population growth. The economic base of the local area, in the agricultural and mining industries, has been overtaken by the service, retail and tourism industries. Pottsville has a small vibrant shopping centre which fulfils the needs of local residents and visitors alike, it is also serviced by a new Health Services Centre and the Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre.

Originally named Potts Point (after Bill Potts, who owned the first dwelling there around 1930), the town became Pottsville early on to avoid confusion with its Sydney namesake. Pottsville is noted for excellent beaches, fishing from both beaches and estuary, and a great place for canoeing and kayaking. The push bike is a favourite mode of transport around Pottsville. The Pottsville Beach Bicentennial Environment Park is area for bushwalking and picnics, as are the picnic areas on the beach front and on the banks of Mooball Creek. There are also tennis courts and a nearby golf course for sporting enthusiasts.
