Tweed Heads Promenade

The design of the promenade at Jack Evans Boat Harbour in Tweed Heads reveals the singular beauty of the ever-shifting inter-tidal zone as an inhabitable landscape. At the mouth of the Tweed River, on the border of New South Wales and Queensland, the new shoreline and aquatic recreation precinct, framed by 4.9 hectares of parkland, is intended to provide the impetus for the critical economic revitalisation of Tweed Heads, and create a diverse, vibrant, culturally rich, recreational and tourism centrepiece for the town centre.

  • Year 2011
The design's success lies in its creation of a place of recreation whilst allowing the tidal nature of the river itself to create a unique and ever-changing experience of the parklands. It is this simple solution which will ensure the longevity of the Jack Evans Boat Harbour parklands as they are placed under the pressures of a growing coastal population and the many pressures of urban densification.
