5. THINKING of taking a drive? Well then head on down to Brunswick Heads for the annual Woodchop Festival with the last day of competition being today. While in Brunswick head down to the Brunswick River and relax on its banks. The river remains the focus of the town, with the large old deco-style Hotel Brunswick taking in the view from across the road and lots of space for family picnics and play right on the river. A footbridge across the south arm of the river leads to the Flora and Nature Reserve, and is just one of the many fishing spots on both river and beach.
