Here at LJ Hooker Brunswick Heads, we strive to provide the highest level of service and professional advice to ensure customer satisfaction!
With that in mind, we have taken this opportunity to put together some information about upcoming events in the Byron Shire.
Brunswick Heads Main Beach
A great beach for long walks, swimming, surfing and fishing. The beach curves to the south towards Byron Bay and is 10.5 km long.
Fisherman can be seen throwing in a line from the break wall. The river is fished for flathead, whiting and bream, while you are able to catch tailor, bream, whiting and mulloway from the beach.
If you hear a local surfer talking about the ‘Bruns Bar’ they are referring to Main Beach Brunswick Heads. The best waves can be found near the south entrance wall, and on the reef just north of the walls.
Main Beach is patrolled in the summer. For exact dates see Byron Shire Council’s Surf Life Saving information.
The Brunswick SLSC is responsible for patrolling the area on weekends and public holidays from September to April each year. You can find more information about when the beach is patrolled and beach safety guidelines for Main Beach at www.beachsafe.org.au.
Located on South Beach Road Torakina Beach is an idyllic curve of beach sheltered by the two break walls at the mouth of the Brunswick River. A perfect spot for children to swim and play in the sand, Torakina is much loved by parents. Behind the beach you will find Torakina Parklands, a large grassy expanse dotted with picnic tables.
A gorgeous historic hotel that stands proudly in the centre of town opposite the beautiful Brunswick River. A treasured favourite of locals and visitors with friendly staff, great food and brilliant live entertainment, the perfect stop for lunch or dinner or a weekend away. Sit back and relax, enjoy all that Hotel Brunswick has to offer!
There are plenty of ways to experience the stunning Brunswick River. Choose from a kayak, canoe, paddleboard, motorboat or BBQ boat. Or keep it simple and take a cool dip in the crystal clear water or a stroll across the footbridge.
