Brunswick Heads is a small coastal holiday village situated at the mouth of the Brunswick River. Nestled within the breakwater there is the safe and peaceful Torakina Beach, while a white sandy surf beach stretches to the south. The north bank of the river hosts a protected rainforest and the southern bank provides a harbour and small marina for fishing boats and small craft. Mount Chincogan and Mount Warning provide a spectacular hinterland backdrop to the river that meanders up to the small town of Mullumbimby ("The Biggest Little Town In Australia").
Despite the surrounding coastal development, Brunswick Heads has retained its traditional seaside village atmosphere. Timber bridges link the riverside to the river and surf beaches.
Tyagarah Nature Reserve
Tyagarah Nature Reserve protects a lovely strip of coastline, which runs for 7km between Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads. The coastal heath provides a gorgeous backdrop to the reserve’s unspoilt beach.
Brunswick Heads Beach
Despite the ever-increasing popularity of this stretch of coast, Brunswick Heads has remained almost unchanged, very much a traditional, relaxed and unpretentious coastal town. It's just 15 minutes' drive from Byron Bay.
Situated at the mouth of the Brunswick River, the area has white sandy beaches, a breadwater and harbour. Brunswick Heads is a popular destination for surfing, fishing and other water sports.
Mount Warning is a volcanic plug of the now-gone Tweed Volcano located in Australia, 14 kilometres west-south-west of Murwillumbah, in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Due to Mount Warning's proximity to Cape Byron, the Australian continent's easternmost point, it is the first place on mainland Australia to receive the sun's rays each day.
Over 60,000 people a year make the 8.8 km, five-hour round-trip trek to the top from Breakfast Creek to capture the most incredible views of the Northern Rivers to south East Queensland from it's peak.
The Brunswick Heads Monthly Market is held in the Memorial Park on the first Saturday of each month. The market is located on the riverbank, and is within easy walking distance of One Fabulous Room as well as the cafes and shops.
“Whether sitting on the beach listening to the sounds of the waves rolling in or walking in the nearby National Parks watching the beautiful nature right before you, you can’t help but feel relaxed here.”
