Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads cycleway route options

Survey closed Friday 7 October


We'd like your feedback on a proposal to create a cycle path that connects Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads and surrounding areas including Ocean Shores. 

Read more about the project below. 

The survey closed Friday 7 October. 

Your feedback will help inform the preferred cycle route option. A report will be presented to Council in November where the next steps for this project will be decided. 

Aims of the Mullum to Bruns cycleway project

The aim is to provide a safe and accessible alternative transport route for the local community, linking urban areas to schools, workplaces and businesses.

Some sections of the route could be shared-path, depending on location and approvals.

Selecting a route is highly subjective, therefore we would like to understand what the community values most about the idea of a cycle route connecting Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads and Ocean Shores. We would then like to hear your views on two proposed options.

Both of the proposed options are at concept stage only. They are subject to continuing investigation and consultation with:

  • Traditional Owners (native title)
  • land owners
  • other stakeholders including Crown Lands and Transport for NSW.

  • Connects to the north of Brunswick Heads via existing shared path on Brunswick Valley Way that extends all the way to Tweed Street.

Option 2 - the south option

  • Starts in Mullumbimby at corner of Prince Street and Argyle Street, heads out of town on-road via Mullumbimby Road (past the industrial estate and across Kings Creek) then takes a turn inland towards Hambly Road, through sugar cane fields directly to Henderson Lane, Saddle Road.
  • Connects to the south of Brunswick Heads via Gulgan Road to Tweed Street.
