Located at the mouth of the Brunswick River, Brunswick Heads is one of a string of small villages along the coast between Byron Bay and Tweed Heads. 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. The Brunswick River Inn Hotel is located in the brunswick Heads CBD.


North of the river is Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, a coastal sanctuary for migratory birds and a popular spot for picnics, bushwalks and river fishing. To the south is Tyagarah Nature Reserve, 8 km of secluded and unspoilt beach that is popular for walking and bird watching.

A sheltered harbour and small marina at Brunswick Heads is home to a fleet of fishing boats and other craft. The town has always been a popular holiday spot and today visitors can still enjoy its laid back lifestyle where you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life. There are cool surf shops, great fashion to buy, an art gallery specialising in contemporary Aboriginal arts and craft, massage and beauty treatments on offer plus cafes and restaurants. Enjoy fresh fish and chips at the art deco Hotel Brunswick, on the river, or from the Fishermen's Co-op.

The small community of Brunswick Heads retains a quality mix of cafes, restaurants, specialty shops, accommodation and a variety of activities. Brunswick Heads offers a great range of simple pleasures activities all year round, for all ages. Brunswick Heads also hosts a number of small scale community oriented and family friendly festivals and events throughout the year.
