Welcome to Brunswick Heads

Unspoilt by development, “Bruns” retains its laid back ambience and its traditional seaside village atmosphere.

Bruns has a great range of dining options from simple fish’n‘chips to alfresco and fine dining.  The fishing co-op at the boat harbour is the port of much of the fresh seafood that is served by the local restaurants and cafes.

Nestled amongst the eateries are eclectic boutiques, home wares and collectibles shops. Find the unlikely and unusual, or for vintage inspired or rare collectables, follow the Second Hand Vintage Trail through the village and beyond.

The river runs beside the town, and you can enjoy a walk along the banks watching the pelicans and seagulls; fish from the bridge or a tinny; or stand up paddle board or kayak up one of the river arms.

The kids can enjoy themselves in the river or at Torakina Beach, a safe family haven only metres from the surf beach. The Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve sits between the north arm of the river and the surf beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

Brunswick Heads hosts a variety of eco-friendly family oriented community events such as The Fish & Chip Festival and McGregor’s Family Carnival concluding with The Woodchop Carnival in January, the Mullum2Bruns Paddle in May, Old & Gold Festival on the June long weekend, and a Photographic Competition from July to September.

Located only 15 minutes north of Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads is perfect for a family holiday by the sea, a place to relax and just enjoy the Simple Pleasures of life.
