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.
