Despite a few spots of rain, the 2018 Mullum2Bruns Paddle attracted a crowd, both in the river and on the bank, with some 1206 paddlers participating complete including several dragon boats.
Organisers of the Mullum2Bruns Paddle, which takes place this coming Sunday (June 27) say they want to avoid the event becoming ‘a platform for protest or activism’.
Each year since 2010, around a thousand people have taken to the water in various non-powered craft to paddle the 10km from Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads.
Fun in the sun was the key to the success of the Mullum 2 Bruns paddle on the weekend with 1100 entries. Beautifully dressed dragon boats to political statements displayed themselves on the Brunswick River as people paddled their way to Brunswick Heads.
Organisers of the annual Mullum2Bruns Paddle event are tipping another record-breaking year after more than 1200 paddlers hit the water for last year’s event.
Twelve hundred locals flocked to the Mullum2Bruns paddle over the weekend, raising over $25,000 for the Brunswick SLSC, Brunswick Marine Rescue and Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre.
From competitive kayakers and paddle-boarders to friends and family just happy to paddle their own canoe, a total of 812 competitors joined this year’s Mullum to Bruns event. Video Sharon Shostak
