This serene setting is right behind the Brunswick-Byron Fishermen’s Co-Op in Brunswick Heads, which is on the Old Pacific Highway as you head north from Byron Bay towards Ocean Shores/New Brighton/South Golden Beach. At its peak, there were 20-odd local fishing boats supplying fresh seafood to the co-op but now most of the fish comes from Northern NSW and SE Queensland. Though the Co-Op itself desperately needs a make-over – it’s a spacious site right on the harbour and it’s up for sale! – it’s still a great spot to go for fish’n’chips, and a fish.
