Tweed Heads is a town located on the Tweed River in north-eastern New South Wales, Australia, in Tweed Shire. Tweed Heads is located next to the border with Queensland, adjacent to the “Twin Town” of Coolangatta, a suburb of the Gold Coast. It is often referred to as a town where you can change time zones – even celebrate New Year twice within an hour – simply by crossing the street, due to its close proximity to the Queensland border, and the fact that New South Wales observes daylight saving whereas Queensland does not.

Neighbourhood Watch Still on the Lookout
Neighbourhood Watch is alive and well in Australia and our Village.
It is designed to enable us, the residents, to be able to protect ourselves and also help the police with their enquiries.
In Tweed Broadwater Village we can help ourselves by being vigilant. This does not mean living in your neighbours pocket, but being aware of what is going on around you. If you see someone lurking about, whom you have not seen before, and looking rather suspicious, then report the matter. By suspicious we mean, looking in houses, be it windows or doors, or cars. This can occur day and night.
As there are many visitors at this time of the year walking about the streets in our area, it is a great idea to ensure that you keep your handbag, purse or wallet, along with any other valuables, out of sight.
It is also advisable to keep your screen doors locked at all times.
There have been several thefts in the village in the past. Make it as difficult as you can for thieves.
Don’t be frightened to phone Crimestoppers to report an incident. You may be helping yourself or your neighbour from being a victim of crime.
Once you report an incident to Crimestoppers they will send a car to the area to check it out. Just a blue light going through the Village may be enough to scare off a prospective offender.
