Brunswick Heads is a beautiful coastal village on the mouth of the Brunswick River. The town is located on the doorstep of many glorious beaches such as Brunswick Heads Beach, a popular spot for swimmers and anglers alike.
About Brunswick Heads
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. The town is a 15-minute drive from Byron Bay.
Situated at the mouth of the Brunswick River, the area has white sandy beaches, a breakwater and harbour, making it a great location to enjoy a wide range of water activities such as yabbying, boating and kayaking.
Meet the town's friendly locals at the Brunswick Heads' monthly markets, 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 cafés and shops.
Between the months of May - October Brunswick Heads is a great location for whale-watching and is often visited by pods of dolphins.
