My latest project has me visiting all the local towns, villages, hamlets, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it two-abode communities and spots that are just so out of the way no one realizes they’re there. And like localities the world over, each and every community has something beautiful, interesting, fabulous and quirky… or just down-right head-scratchingly bizarre in it.
Funky Brunswick Heads has the lot.
Brunz, as the locals call it, is famous for many things – it’s incredible beach, it’s stunning river, the Bikes and Kites Festival, the Fish and Chips Festival – which is actually all about fishing and woodchopping…. yes, definitely two things you'd think about at the same time - and of course, it is the Vintage-Retro capital of the Far North Coast – no, that’s not an official State declaration, just me declaring a statement that should be made official!
This laid-back sweet little village is filled with fabulous vintage and second-hand shops at every turn, cafés quirked up with real vintage fixtures and shops of all kinds oozing retro flair; it’s as if you've walked into a mash of beautiful memories.
On this glorious Saturday, we’d popped down to Brunz to hunt out its street art. And to have a quintessential Brunz breaky – another thing Brunswick Heads is famous for.
