"Nice Quiet Area To Raise A Family"

The area of Terranora lies to the west of Banora Point on the Tweed Coast of Northern NSW. It is elevated and many homes are lucky to have beautiful views towards the Gold Coast to the north or Kingscliff down to Byron Bay to the south. Terranora has a very rural feel to it with most of the residential area having been built on old farm land. The majority of the Terranora area is residential with residents driving to the larger towns like Tweed Heads, Murwillumbah or the Gold Coast for work. It is this reason why a car is essential and also why the area is so quiet.

There is a public Primary school (Kindergarten to Year 6) and a private Anglican High School (Year 5 to Year 12) with both schools regarded as being among the best in the North Coast region. A small shopping complex has recently opened and contains a SPAR supermarket, newsagent, hairdressers, chemist, fruit and veg shop, Thai restaurant and family-friendly Tavern. Other than these stores, residents have to drive into the nearest Coles supermarket which is located at Banora Point - approx. 7km away. Public transport is not great but buses do provide a daily service for those wishing to go to Tweed Heads or Murwilllumbah.

Terranora is a picturesque spot on the Tweed Coast that is a great location for those looking for a quieter, family-friendly town to raise a family or retire in - just make sure you have a car.

"As with many areas within Australia this could be regarded as "God's Country". Serene, clean and beautiful."

Good School, Good People, Good Life.
