Brunswick Heads

Fishing, SUP-ing, pampering, shopping and leisurely al fresco lunches… family friendly Brunswick Heads is ‘Byron light’.

This laid-back coastal town with a dream of a river and long beaches is riding the wave of Byron Bay’s celebrity status in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. ‘Bruns’ offers a similar mix of boutique shops, eclectic cafés and summer festivals, but because there is less of everything, there is no pressure to see or do a lot. Brunswick is also light on the nightlife and it’s flat, so you can easily walk or cycle everywhere. Paddle along the river or go whale watching to get close to nature.
