Brunswick Heads and its Simple Pleasures

Spring has sprung and Bruns is the perfect place to be!
Enjoy a refreshing swim in the river or beach, hire a canoe and take in the scenic views along the river. Make sure to snap some epic photos along the way and enter the Simple Pleasures Photo Competition as the entry date has been extended to
Friday 22nd of September.

Bruns is filled with specialist stores now including the Little Dispensary opening up on Park St. The Visitor Centre is currently focussing on local artists and has some amazing local art, Australian-made wildlife toys and children’s books, including
‘The Adventures of Mist’ written by local author Katrina Jeffrey. Katrina’s books hope to ‘engage children in a fun way that will bring them into the world that Mist inhabits. The goal is to teach the impact they can make on the world around them through conservation and responsible choices.’

We also have an array of delicious treats sold throughout town including the Bruns Bakery, Sticky Fingers Pizzeria – now under
new ownership, and the newly opened Street Sushi!
We are also excited to see Pink Lotus opening up in town.

See you in Bruns!
