Byron Shire is famous for our local markets.  

Offering unique experiences throughout each market, attendees are sure to find themselves surrounded by diversity, authenticity and wonder. With a collection of fabulous artisan-made products, holistic services, quality imports, food and much more, it’s no question why these markets are the most talked about markets in the region.

Our markets’ make it, bake it, grow it, sew it – philosophy offers a platform for local residents and small businesses to use in order to sell their goods and services.

Local farmers and growers of the area come together for our amazing Farmers Markets.  All manner of fresh produce, including fruit and vegetables, herbs, free-range eggs, organic coffee, seedlings and plants, fresh beef and pork, smoked fish, cut flowers including spectacular roses, as well as sauces, pickles, muffins, cakes and bread are on sale.  Get in early as the goods sell out quickly.

Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew

Charity begins at home and continues at the Hotel Brunswick.

We’ve recently installed a Charity Tap, enabling us to continue giving by donating 100% of profits from our Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew to worthy causes. You’ll be giving too, by buying and trying our first Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew – Summer Ale.

Summer Ale is freshly hand-crafted at Seven Mile Brewery, just down the road in Ballina, using 100% Aussie ingredients. It’s a new take on an old classic, the Australian Pale Ale, with a smooth mouthfeel and mild bitter finish of hops, malted oats, tropical fruits and citrus.

Along with Classic Brew t-shirts, singlets and caps, Summer Ale is exclusively available on tap at the Hotel Brunswick.

So, raise a glass or two of Summer Ale Classic Brew, and raise funds too, at the Hotel Brunswick… a classic Aussie pub.

Vision Walks - Eco Tours - Award Winning!

Vision Walks patented Night Vision Walk is the only one of its kind in the world!

Imagine exploring the Australian rainforest at night, searching for nocturnal wildlife. Instead of wielding a torch you’re incognito, wearing special night vision goggles. This is military grade technology that lets you see animals as they go about their business. 

Because we don’t use bright lights we are less intrusive and that means we can be more connected to what is going on all around us. For many of our clients, seeing the forest in the dark is an enlightening experience.

After your walk enjoy a hot chocolate gazing up at the starry night. Heaven!
