Along with Broken Head and Tyagarah, the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve forms a vital stepping stone for migrating birds. Species from north and south-east Australia overlap here, providing unusually diverse plant and animal communities. Relax with a quiet picnic, a bushwalk or a spot of river fishing. A short walk from the carpark takes in the rare coastal rainforest and opens onto the breakwater on the north bank of the Brunswick River. Then follow the path back along the river.
