Faerie Night Solstice Lights on the Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail

On Saturday 2 July between 5:30 and 7:30pm the fairy houses on the
Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail will be lit with candles, magical lanterns and fairy lights to celebrate the winter solstice - the shortest day of the year which falls on Tuesday 21st June.

There will also be tiny fairy boats floating on the river near the Footbridge and magical lights in the mangroves.

The Brunzfairy Trail aims to connect children with the world of imaginative play, the wonder of playing in nature, and the cycles of the seasons. It is lovingly designed to bring out the imaginative child in us all and to foster a sense of joy, fun and play. It is completely free, and designed that way to give families a chance to have no cost fun together.

Hundreds of families have enjoyed the fairy trail, and many come regularly to visit their favourites amongst the fourteen hidden fairy houses, and leave little notes and flowers. Many post photos on the Brunzfairies Facebook site, and the joy and wonder on the little one’s faces is clear to see. https://www.facebook.com/brunzfairies/

Come along and walk the trail, and if you like carry a lantern if you have one.

You could also be part of the creative team that makes our village into a fairy wonderland for this night. Call Ollie Heathwood on 0428 284 030 if you would like to be part of making magic happen for our little ones to enjoy. Volunteers warmly welcomed.

Where will the magic be?

The Fairy Solstice Lights walk will start at the beach near the surf club where the fairy lighthouse will be lit, and from there follow the magic across the footbridge, along Fingal Street and finish at Clem's Cargo on Tweed Street. You can also start at Clementina's fairy house outside Clem's cargo if you wish and then go along Fingal Street to the beach.

There will be a fairy ring to dance in by Gum Blossom Fairy’s house, in the park beside the Brunswick Heads Library.
