The Spirit of Brunswick Heads

Brunswick Heads is known for it’s stunning river entrance and its local ‘beach town’ vibe. The Brunswick River is a perfect spot for water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, boating and swimming. The town, locally referred to as ‘Bruns’, is a just short drive north of
Byron Bay. 

Brunswick Heads has something to offer everyone, whether it’s shopping, dining or outdoor activities. Trawlers Bar has a perfect corner location with riverside views for a drink with lunch or dinner. 

Across the street a wonderful park for families, two riverside playgrounds and picnic tables. Across the footbridge you’ll find Brunswick’s hidden gem,
Torakina Beach, a tranquil curve of sand sheltered by
the two breakwalls at the mouth of
the Brunswick River.
