Brunswick Heads

Brunswick Heads Holiday Accommodation

Brunswick Heads is a charming coastal gem, nestled along the north coast of New South Wales in Byron Shire, that embodies the essence of relaxed Australian beachside living. This idyllic village is conveniently positioned at the mouth of the Brunswick River, a mere 15-minute drive from Byron Bay and only half an hour from both Ballina Byron Airport and Gold Coast Airport. 

In Brunswick Heads, life unfolds at a leisurely pace, perfectly in tune with the gentle rhythm of the waves. The town steadfastly maintains its traditional seaside atmosphere, untouched by the rapid coastal development nearby. Its wooden bridges serve as serene pathways to both the tranquil Torakina beach, a quiet sanctuary at the river’s mouth, and the vast surf beach stretching all the way to Byron Bay.

Brunswick Heads is flanked by lush protected rainforests to the north and a cosy harbour to the south, providing a safe haven for fishing boats and small craft. The dramatic silhouette of Mt Chincogan and Mt Warning looms in the distance, creating a breathtaking backdrop to the meandering river.

With its blend of surf shops, golden sands, Art Deco architecture, and a marina brimming with boats, Brunswick Heads is the epitome of the quintessential Aussie beach town. The relaxed aura of this coastal haven even lured filmmakers to shoot the reboot of the popular drama, Sea Change, here. Yet despite its brush with Hollywood, the town remains a laidback hamlet where bare feet and salty hair are not only acceptable but celebrated. Brunswick Heads invites you to unwind, disconnect and immerse yourself in its easy-going charm and timeless beauty.
