Tweed Heads Learning Site


Pioneer Park, 230 Kennedy Drive
Tweed Heads NSW 2485

This unique Learning Site sits on the banks of Terranora Creek, looking towards the Tweed Estuary Nature Reserve, and offers many opportunities to explore the changing social history of the Tweed, alongside the environmental and historical significance of the Tweed River system.

The site features the atmospheric Boyds' Shed, a rare survivor from Tweed's vibrant fishing era. The Shed was first built by the Boyd family in 1907 and used by many generations as an operational fishing shed and an important social hub. The site also contains the relocated original Tweed Heads Courthouse and the surviving crew quarters from a working Drogher river boat.

Museum Education staff are able to work with you to develop a tailored visit for your students or group members. Find out more about school and group bookings.
