Terrace Fun & Awards
There will be fun at the soundshell at Terrace Park on the river in Bruns. Paddlers can relax and refresh themselves after their paddle while waiting for the awards presentation. There is plenty to do while you wait for friends and family who are paddling – expos, food stalls, jumping castle, face painting, people-watching and lots more. There will be non-stop music during this time, performed by talented local artists who very kindly donate their time free for the day.
The three founding organisations of the Mullum2Bruns paddle are:
- Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre
- Brunswick Surf Lifesaving Club
- Brunswick Marine Rescue
All are non-profit organisations, run by volunteers, which rely on fundraising for their survival.
The Mullum2Bruns Paddle Organising Committee was formed, with representatives from each of these organisations meeting regularly to create the eco-friendly family fun event.
The Mullum2Bruns Paddle could not happen without the dedication of the volunteers who make up the three beneficiary organisations. The months of planning, the days of setting up prior to Paddle day and the sheer hard work on the day mean that these funds are well and truly earned. Sincere thanks to the volunteers for making all this possible.
