The Hotel Brunswick is at the heart of this Northern NSW stop-over. The “Bruns”, with its North-facing courtyard beer-garden, shaded by giant Poinciana trees, has become a tourist attraction in its own right.
Built in 1940 by Jim Cavill, the architect of early Surfers Paradise, the Bruns has established a reputation for top pub food and free, live entertainment. Bands play at the Bruns from Thursday til Sunday. If you can’t make it home after a big night, there is always inexpensive accommodation available upstairs in the colonial style rooms.
The Bruns is ideal for families. Head along for a feed after taking the kids for a swim in the Brunswick River, a stone’s throw away. If you’re keen for a surf, the waves are a stroll, then off to the pub for the afternoon.”
