An easy stroll across the old, timber Marshall Bridge lands you on a long stretch of sandy, pristine Pacific beach. Torakina Beach, a sheltered inlet on the southern wall of the Brunswick River breakwater, offers an unbeatable location for safe family swimming, picnics, and relaxing in the sun. Nearby are a harbour, a small marina for fishing boats and a lush, protected rainforest. During the months of June and October, the annual Humpback whale migration is one of the many natural attractions of this delightful little town.
