Mullumbimby, 15 - 18 November
Don't miss one of the most successful boutique music 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. Get in quick to book The Coach House, an idyllic holiday house and studio in Mullum. The Figs is a tropical oasis located between Mullum and Bruns and offers 3 deluxe suites and a cottage. Or stay in beautiful Brunswick Heads, only 10 mins from Mullum and cool off with a dip in the ocean or the river each day. Click here to check out hotel, motel, holiday house and holiday park options.

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.
A new Youth Seat at the Bruns Skate Park is already proving a hit with the young and young at heart. Lovingly created by members of our community - artists, builders, school children. Watch the 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.
