Mullum to Bruns Paddle

It’s almost that time of year when paddlers from far and wide set their sights on the waters of Byron Shire for the annual Mullum2Bruns Paddle.

This year there will be a significant change in the event: owing to an unfavourable tide and for the safety of participants, the Mullum2Bruns will paddle off at the later time of 10am on Sunday 24 May. 

This event is the major annual fundraiser for the three Brunswick Heads key volunteer organisations – The Brunswick Surf Lifesaving Club, the Brunswick Volunteer Marine Rescue and the Brunswick Visitor Centre.

This is an eco-friendly family fun event and organisers are expecting a bigger participation this year with the Paddle’s growing popularity and the addition of Dragon Boats. 

All paddling events begin at Heritage Park in Mullumbimby and finish in Terrace Park, Brunswick Heads, where live music, free paddle clinics, a duck race, raffle, barbecues and other activities will entertain the crowds in a safe, friendly festive ­environment. 

The Mullum2Bruns Paddle has divisions for recreational and competitive paddlers of all ages and abilities.

Events include the 10km Echo Fun Paddle to encourage residents and visitors of all ages to experience the Brunswick River’s natural beauty, the 10km Hotel Brunswick Paddle Challenge, which is an open division, the 10km Stand Up Paddle Challenge, and the Best Decorated Craft.

Online registrations open 5 March with earlybird discounts until 6 April – online registration closes at midnight 23 May.
