The clubs up here on the border of Queensland are huge and offer cheap bistro meals as well as pricier ones in more upscale restaurants, inexpensive drinks at the bar, entertainment, and hundreds of poker machines. The biggest in New South Wales is the Twin Towns Services Club, Wharf Street, Tweed Heads (tel. 07/5536 2277). Another worth checking out is Seagulls Rugby League Club, Gollan Drive, Tweed Heads (tel. 07/5536 3433). Major entertainers, such as Tom Jones and Joe Cocker, have played here over the last few years. It's open 24 hours. To gain admittance to these "private" clubs, you must sign the registration book just inside the door. Tweed Heads is 40km (25 miles), or about a 30-minute drive, from Murwillumbah.
