Coolangatta, a seaside-resort town on the New South Wales border, is 95 km south-east of central Brisbane. Coolangatta merges with Tweed Heads, the 'Twin Towns' divided by Boundary Street on the New South Wales border, which climbs a headland to Point Danger. Coolangatta is the southern-most settlement within Gold Coast City.
