Consistently good food, we've tried many of their dishes and they never disappoint! Cocktails are great too and although the restaurant is set within a resort environment, the mood and atmosphere is cosy and inviting and outdoor undercover seating is perfect in summer. 7/7 Bells Blvd, Kingscliff 02 6674 2022 Mon 5:30–9pm Tue 5:30–9pm Wed 5:30–9pm Thu 5:30–9pm Fri 12–2pm, 4–9pm Sat 12–2pm, 4–9pm Sun 12–2pm, 4–9pm

Best and biggest burgers ever!! Along with the chunky cut chips you can't go wrong here for a casual bite. Can highly recommend the black bean burger which comes with a warning to share if you're not a big eater :) 30 Tweed St, Brunswick Heads 02 6685 1631 Mon 7am–9pm Tue 7am–9pm Wed 7am–9pm Thu 7am–9pm Fri 7am–9pm Sat 7am–9pm Sun 7am–9pm

Neighbourhoods

Must see towns and villages to visit..
A beautiful little seaside village with great beaches, cafes and boutique shops. Something for everyone here with surf beaches, river swimming and kayaking and Torakina Beach a great family spot for river/beach swimming. Big open parks and walks along the river and shops. Go to the library to pick up a fairy trail map for little kids or go fishing, hire kayaks or electric bicycles for the big kids. For the shoppers, make sure you don't miss Fabulous Mrs Fox and the markets are the first Saturday of the month. Make sure you visit Old Maids on the main road into Bruns for awesome burgers and the best chunky cut chips in town including vegan options. For something fresh and healthy, Yami's do great fresh middle eastern food, drinks and smoothies. Best coffee in town is at the Footbridge Cafe who also do a mean golden latte!

This one speaks for itself! Must do's are Wategos Beach and the lighthouse walk, The Pass, Main Beach especially as the sun sets whilst sipping on fresh coconuts listening to the buskers. Fave food places are Asia Joes, Fish Mongers, Miss Margarita (all in town) and Treehouse at Belongil Beach is fully licences and great for a night out!

Sightseeing

Must see places..
Drive to the headland or park at the bottom and walk to the river mouth and along the beach up to the headland. Stunning views north and south to Byron Bay, the most easterly point in Australia. Perfect spot in whale watching season. Great for river mouth swimming , surf beaches, rock pools, park, walks and picnics.

Cabarita Beach, Cabarita Cove and South Beach (or Back Beach) are stunning. Depending on the wind direction, there's normally a protected spot at one of these beaches. Stunning views, a great boardwalk to the top of the headland. Great for whale watching or just watching the surfers. Higher than Hastings Headland there are views to the far north and south. Take the walkway through the nature reserve between Cabarita Beach (at the Cabarita Hotel) to Cabarita Cove/headland.

Doma Cafe! Enough said. If you like Japanese you'll love this place :) Having said that in the school holidays make sure you don't go at peak eating times. It's a bit of a drive but a beautiful one and this place gets packed! Moonshine Coffee Rosters are just two doors down and the Hills Emporium on the corner and the little pottery shop around the corner are all worth the stop. Nearby/on the way are Mullumbimby, The Crystal Castle and Bangalow.
