Brunswick Heads

Located at the mouth of the Brunswick River, Brunswick Heads is one of a string of small villages along the coast between Byron Bay and Tweed Heads. Nearby is the town of Mullumbimby and, in the hinterland, the dramatic peak of Mount Warning can be seen. A breakwater where the river meets the ocean ensures a safe beach at Brunswick Heads, perfect for family holidaymakers.

North of the river is Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, a coastal sanctuary for migratory birds and a popular spot for picnics, bushwalks and river fishing. To the south is Tyagarah Nature Reserve, 8 km of secluded and unspoilt beach that is popular for walking and bird watching.

A sheltered harbour and small marina at Brunswick Heads is home to a fleet of fishing boats and other craft. The town has always been a popular holiday spot and today visitors can still enjoy its laid back lifestyle where you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life. There are cool surf shops, great fashion to buy, an art gallery specialising in contemporary Aboriginal arts and craft, massage and beauty treatments on offer plus cafes and restaurants. Enjoy fresh fish and chips at the art deco Hotel Brunswick, on the river, or from the Fishermen’s Co-op.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
