Paddles to the ready for Mullum2Bruns

Now in its eighth year, the Mullum2Bruns Paddle returns May 27. Photo supplied

Each year since 2010, around a thousand people have taken to the water in various non-powered craft to paddle the 10km from Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads.

Why not join them this year on the nearly legendary Mullum2Bruns Paddle on Sunday May 27?

Paddlers come in various shapes and sizes as do their craft: from individuals with inflatable flamingos to 22-person dragon boats.

There are serious competitors in the challenge events and people dressed up in all sorts of crazy costumes for the fun events. Amongst it all, there are lots of your friends and neighbours out for a leisurely paddle down the beautiful Brunswick.


The paddle is the major annual fundraiser for the three deserving local groups that work very hard all year to make this event happen. They include the Brunswick Heads Surf Life Saving Club, Brunswick Marine Rescue and the Brunswick Visitor Centre – all worthy volunteer organisations that need your support to continue servicing our local community.

Major supporters and sponsors include The Echo, Mullum Comprehensive Health Care, the Hotel Brunswick and Stone & Wood.

Online registrations for the paddle open on March 8. Register early to qualify for the earlybird rate at

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
