Council is currently seeking feedback on proposed changes to times parking and increased enforcement to resolve the parking pressures at peak times.
Amended layout to Brunswick Heads parking as at 20 Sept 2017. (attach pdf)
The Chamber welcomes your feedback by email to email@example.com or in the suggestions box at the Visitor Centre on your ideas to improve the current parking layout.
This map will be updated with new ideas as they come in and are considered. Initial changes have already been made and the next update is scheduled for 5 October.
Council would also like to introduce paid parking to Brunswick Heads. Council seeks feedback from the community on this question also.
It is essential that you complete the Council’s online survey and register your feedback. www.yoursaybyronshire.com.au/brunswick-heads-parking-review
In the last Business Survey 92.2% of businesses indicated they did not support paid parking. The Chamber is embarking on a "Say no to paid parking" campaign. Information is provided in the flyer attached.

Mullumbimby, 16 - 19 November
Don't miss the 10th Anniversary of one of the most successful boutique festivals in the country. No gates. No big headlines. No VIP areas. Mullum Music Festival is a ‘No hassle’ festival. A festival where artists and performers mingle, where shows are held in halls, clubs and pubs rather than tents, and instead of driving hours to park in a field and trudge on site, patrons become enmeshed in the spirit of a vibrant village.

Launched on Sunday 11 June, the Fishing Seat is the fourth in the series of seats along Tweed St being created to depict important aspects of Brunswick Heads’ history and culture. Brunswick Heads has a long and rich fishing history, both commercial and recreational. The original design was by Robyn Venn from Brunswick Heads Anglers & Deep Sea Fishing Club and was lovingly crafted by members of U3A Mullumbimby Men's Shed with David Ashton & Stuart Cole. The Fishing Seat can be found at the Brunswick Heads Seafood picnic area at the Boatharbour. Watch our youtube video here.
The Frank Mills Seat
Situated under the Cypress Pine, in front of the Tweed Street IGA Supermarket courtyard, the new Frank Mills Seat embodies key elements of Mr Mills' colourful life. This is his story...
A beautiful new community seat depicting local flora and fauna in mosaic has been unveiled on Tweed Street, in front of the Catholic Church. This is the second community seat on Tweed St, following completion of the Frank Mills Historical seat near the IGA Supermarket on Tweed St. The stunning artwork for the flora and fauna mosaic seat was created by local artist Renee Gordos and mosaicist Pauline Ross. The seat was lovingly crafted to life with assistance from students at Brunswick Heads Public School.
