Glades Golf & Spa

The Glades is a par 72, 6420 metre championship course that spans 65 hectares of land.

The course layout was designed by champion golfer and Australian sporting icon and legend Greg Norman, and is typical of his trademark aggressive layouts.

The Glades boasts superb agronomy that is unique to the area. In particular the greens consist of a new type of "Creeping bent grass" that offers a true putting surface and is the preference of professionals and amateurs alike.

This grass will ensure a superior putting surface for the entire year.

A feature on the course is the trademark Greg Norman bunkering - in total there are 98 bunkers over 18 holes.

In his design, Greg not only had a vision to create a challenging golf course, but he also retained 9 hectares of wetland area to create a natural wildlife sanctuary within the course.

Reelfishn Charters

Based in Tweed Heads on the Tweed River, we are centrally located
between Queensland and New South Wales.
Our fishing grounds range from the Queensland Gold Coast in the North
to Byron Bay, New South Wales in the South.
With a top speed of 30 knots we can reach our fishing grounds quicker
than most other Charters and cover a greater range of reefs, wrecks and hot spots -
all the way out to the 50 fathom markers.

Why charter from the Tweed River rather than the Gold Coast?
We are only 15 minutes drive south of the Queensland Gold Coast where there a
great number of other world class fishing charter operators and charter boats,
all first class fishing charter providers like ourselves. However, the majority of these Gold Coast
based charters are only licenced to fish in Queensland waters.
Therefore the southern Queensland fishing boundaries have a high density of fishing charter
activity which inturn can only unbalance the marine environment making fish harder to catch.
Alternatively, NSW Waterways have issued only several licences for Charter Fishing Operations
on the tweed.  By comparison, less boats, less advserse impact on the marine environment
and as a result, there seems to be more fish to catch.


Sea World Cruises
Enjoy grandstand views of Palazzo Versace, Marina Mirage and the spectacular waterfront homes of the Sovereign Islands from our three levels of viewing decks. Then head north into the wildlife-rich islands of the Gold Coast’s own Marine Park where our expert tour guides will assist you to spot rare migratory birds, dolphins, sea eagles and South Stradbroke Island’s unique population of beach-combing wallabies.
 Or enjoy a sunset cruise and relax and enjoy a welcoming glass of sparkling wine, a romantic sunset and stunning views of the city lights as evening falls over the beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater.
