Twelve hundred locals flocked to the Mullum2Bruns paddle over the weekend, raising over $25,000 for the Brunswick SLSC, Brunswick Marine Rescue and Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre.

Competitive, novelty and family challengers made the 10km journey from Mullumbimby’s Heritage Park to Terrace Park in Brunswick Heads, where they were greeted with live music and festivities.

Event co-ordinator Michele Dennis said the event was a total success that wouldn’t have been possible without its volunteers and supporters.

  1. So very happy to see the Byron Friends of Palestine presenting the face of solidarity with the people of Palestine and Gaza with their wonderful Gaza Aid Flotilla group promoting peace and justice!

  2. This event was the highlight of our week’s holiday in Brunswick Heads. The people we encounterd were just so friendly and the organisers did a great job. The day’s entertainment was most enjoyable. As Queensland residents we were impressed and we would certainly recommend that area for any tourist wanting a fantastic holiday. I have to say though that we were amazed at the number of cyclists who don’t wear helmets in the Brunswick Heads area. Quite alarming!!
