MVP is its own award

It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

The Spirit of Brunswick Heads

Known for its stunning river entrance and its ‘beach town’ vibe, Brunswick Heads has transformed from sleepy fishing village to one of the hubs of the Byron Shire. The Brunswick River is a perfect spot for water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, boating and swimming. Brunswick has managed to balance its ever increasing appeal to visitors with a strong sense of community identity, helped by the fact that most of the local businesses are owned by local residents. 

Brunswick Heads has something to offer for everyone, whether it’s shopping, dining or outdoor activities. It's packed with options for the perfect for lunch or dinner, with a spot of shopping before or after. There are a lot of natural spaces, parks and beaches which are great for family gatherings, or to just kick back and relax on a picnic. Down the road and across the footbridge you’ll find Torakina Beach, a tranquil curve of sand sheltered by the two breakwalls at the mouth of the Brunswick River.
