AN ELDERLY woman has died after being hit by a car at Banora Point, near Tweed Heads, last night.

NSW Police said in a statement just before 9.30pm emergency services responded to reports a woman had been hit by a car at the car park of Club Banora in Leisure Dr.

Police believe the 79-year-old woman was standing in the car park and was seen to fall over before the car hit her.

She was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital, but died a short time later.

The driver of the car - a 54-year-old woman - and her male passenger were uninjured, but the woman was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.

Officers from Tweed Byron LAC are investigating the incident and are asking witnesses to come forward by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Club Banora was hosting its annual Oasis Pools' New Year's Eve fireworks display last night when the incident occurred.
