Tweed Valley, NSW

On my husband's rostered days off, we try to get out and explore places we haven't been before. Working in retail means he doesn't get a "normal" weekend.
As Brisbane is only an hour drive from the Queensland/New South Wales border, we often head south and explore Northern NSW. 
One of the areas of Northern NSW that I had been wanting to explore is the Tweed Valley. We headed down the M1 and, after crossing the state border, traveled on the Tweed Valley Way with plenty of "Pull over!!!" stops on the way.



Lunch stop at the small town of Tumbulgum on the Tweed River. That's Mt Warning in the distance.



This looks like a perfect spot to lay out the picnic rug.

Old Sugar Mill on the right... We are planning to head back down soon to explore this particular spot a bit more.

Finally at Murwillumbah we took a little side track to find a nice spot for sunset. I love the layers of mountains.

This looks like a good spot for sunset...

Magnificent. I love that area of our state. The farm I grew up on was the other side of Mt Warning with amazing views.

My daughter will be in Murwillumbah next week - I'm jealous! I love your photos of Mt Warning, the layers in the mountains! I look forward to your return to the area.
