Kingscliff Outrigger

Thursday, June 30, 2005

Kingscliff is a seaside holiday resort nestled between the Tweed River and a string of beautiful beaches. Just south of the Queensland border, it offers an alternative for those who would rather holiday away from the high density of Surfers Paradise. Two kilometres south of the town in the village of Salt is Outrigger on the Beach, the first international hotel in northern New South Wales.

Outrigger Hotels & Resorts is a family-owned and operated company committed to providing hospitality in premiere destinations throughout the Pacific. They manage 12,000 rooms in Australia, Hawaii, Micronesia, Fiji, Tahiti and New Zealand.

The village of Salt has been developed on an area with a 1.2 kilometre Pacific Ocean frontage. Totally designed for leisure, it has walking and cycling paths meandering around grassy parks and well-tended gardens. Cudgen Creek is a wide waterway, perfect for canoeing and fishing.

The Outrigger resort offers 318 rooms — a mix of hotel rooms and self-contained, one and two-bedroom apartments equipped with dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, washing machine, dryer and plenty of room to move. Shutters filter the sunshine, there is a lagoon and plunge pools, spa, sauna, floodlit tennis courts and barbecue grills for lazy lunches and dinners.

The outdoor water recreation area, Go Ride a Wave, offers surfing and body boarding lessons with qualified instructors, who also conduct kayak and mountain bike tours. Boards, kayaks and beach gear are all available for hire.

Salt Village Centre is set to open in September with shops, restaurants and the Golden Door Spa.

A new lifesaving club has been installed at the front of the hotel to ensure safe swimming on the beach. Lifesavers are also on duty at the lagoon pool.

Kingscliff offers a range of restaurants — you name the cuisine and chances are you will find an establishment specialising in it.
