This weekend for the tenth year running you can enjoy a river trip from Mullum to Brunswick as part of the Mullum 2 Bruns paddle. Just make sure you get down to Federation Bridge in Mullumbimby by 9.30am to launch yourself if you’re in it for the competition or at 11am if you are just looking to go for a float.
‘Some of the top kayakers and stand up paddlers in the country compete in the various 10km challenges but the majority of event participants are not competitive,’ said organisers.
All non-motorised craft (and crew) are eligible to register for the paddle and the organising committee are looking forward to a creative and colourful array of dragon boats, kayaks, inflatables and even homemade tugboats for the 10th anniversary edition.
Organisers are reminding everyone that afterwards there is a fun day of family friendly activities, live music, food and the spectacular Dragon Boat flotilla at the Terrace Park in Brunswick Heads.
The paddle is a major annual fundraiser for three very worthy non-for-profit organisations based in Brunswick Heads including the Surf Life Savers Club, Marine Rescue and Visitor Centre.
The Fun Paddle kicks off at 9:30am with the competitive events from 11am at Heritage Park Mullumbimby on Sunday 26 May. Full program and online registration are now open.
