Brunswick Heads, New South Wales.
A restorative walk around familiar country creates reconnection, peace and healing after a natural disaster.
Hikes in Northern NSW and the Northern Rivers Region often wind in and out of nature reserves, national parks, and of course, adjacent to iconic riverbanks. For many who were affected by the recent flooding events, walking and reconnecting with the rivers has been an important healing process. With many potential bush walks in Northern NSW, one of the best hikes is the Brunswick Heads River Walk. Using the Brunswick River as its guide, this walk passes old fashioned icons like the fish and chip shop and pub and presents the chance to swim in the Tea Tree Lakes or Torakina Beach… or both. Trails of varying difficulties, such as this one, offer opportunities to immerse in the region’s various vegetation classes, such as heathland, rainforests, mangroves and salt marshes, where native flora and fauna flourishes.
Wherever and whenever we walk, we acknowledge and pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the land.
