Brunswick Heads

Brunswick Heads

Brunswick Heads is situated on the Brunswick River and is approximately 640 km north of Sydney on the far north coast of NSW.

Following a series of community meetings in Brunswick Heads in 2012 it was agreed that renewal of the boat harbour and master plan was required.  Find out more about the master plan project.

Vessel owners should note that the mouth of the Brunswick River can be hazardous and they should contact Roads and Maritime (RMS) for advice on conditions and the suitability of their vessel to enter the harbour. Vessel owners can view sea conditions on the RMS web camera.

Moorings in the Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour are managed under Crown lands licence by local organisations. Below are contact details for maritime services and facilities for commercial and recreational vessel owners.
