The suburb of Coolangatta is located at the southernmost part of Gold Coast City in Queensland, and adjacent to its “Twin Town” of Tweed Heads in New South Wales. Coolangatta and Tweed Heads enjoy a shared economy, with a fishing industry supported by the Tweed River that is thriving. Both sides of the state border enjoy a steady supply of seafood offered in clubs and restaurants in the holiday region. The suburb was among the earliest settlements on the Gold Coast, with Europeans occupying the area since around 1828 and township established in 1883. It was named after the schooner Coolangatta, which was shipwrecked during a storm in 1846.
