TWEED SHIRE

State : New South Wales

Arms (crest) of Tweed Shire
Official blazon
English blazon wanted


Origin/meaning

The shield depicts Capt. James Cook's ship "Endeavour" sailing in front of a landscape with Mt Warning in the background. It is claimed that Mt Warning is the earliest place on the Australian mainland to see the sun rise (but that would be out to sea - not behind the mountain as in the arms!)

The crest depicts the small-leafed tamarind fruit in front of a Blue Knob Orchid.

The area around Tweed is the only habitat of the Albert Lyre-bird, hence the supporters.
