Best Brunswick Heads Camping Grounds

Share this article

Brunswick Heads is one of my favourite places to visit in Northern New South Wales. It’s location on the banks of the Brunswick River provides the best of both worlds with surf and river access at your fingertips. There is no shortage of activities to do, or even just simply relax by the water with a drink in hand. It’s an ideal location for boaties with great fishing to be had from the mouth to the rainforest hinterland, and great surf for keen boardriders.

Unlike close neighbour Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads has been able to avoid the influx of weekend tourists and keep it’s small town charm.

Being only an hour and half drive from Brisbane, it’s the perfect weekend getaway location. So throw your family and a tent, swag or even just a simple camping mattress in the car and take a trip across the border and visit beautiful Brunswick Heads.
