Mullum2Bruns Paddle feels current of support as Brisbane fans cross border for river fun

Posted on 01.06.2018

Queenslanders have flooded across the New South Wales border to make a splash at Australia’s biggest one-day paddling event.

Each year hundreds of paddlers from around the country make their way to the Brunswick River in northern New South Wales for the Mullum2Bruns Paddle.

Almost anything goes when it comes to getting from the start line in Mullumbimby to the finish 10 kilometres away at the footbridge in Brunswick Heads.

And while the fundraising event features some racing among stand-up paddleboarders (SUP), kayakers and dragon boaters, it’s generally all about fun, laughter, colour and imagination.

The Northern Rivers paddle is a must-do for Brisbane’s BrisSUP Club which has been attending for five years.

Club president Ilka Schoenefuss said the weekend away was a favourite event with about 50 members spending the weekend in the region.

“There’s a sense of coming together for a special weekend of paddling,” she said.

“It’s the community here, we love sharing what we’re doing and it’s a beautiful location to paddle [and] the water is clear.

“Most of us live on Moreton Bay and the water’s usually not so clear so it’s great here.”
