If you want to bring a smile to your little ones face, the Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail for kids is the place to visit. Brunswick Heads is a popular holiday destination, for both people and fairies, not far from the laid-back coastal town of Byron Bay in Northern NSW.
No matter how old you are, no one can resist the thought of tiny fairies living in gorgeous tiny fairy houses. Particularly ones that are exquisitely made out of natural, ‘found on the ground’ and recycled materials.
Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail
In September 2015, a mysterious Fairy Godmother started providing the fairies with gorgeous little houses to call their own. Today there are over 30 little fairy houses hidden in little nooks and crannies in beautiful Brunswick Heads. The fact that they are all hidden away just increases the delight for both young and old when they are discovered.
The aim of the Fairy Trail is to connect children with the natural world. There are no descriptions of the fairies, elves and pixies that live in them as the Fairy Godmother wants to inspire children to use their imagination. It also aims to reinforce the message that you can gain great joy from simple pleasures.
Where to find fairy houses
You can pick up a FREE clue sheet from the Visitors Centre or download it here, which contains beautiful clues like:
Near the fire station on Fingal Street, a tiny fire station in a tree!
It’s the home of the fiery fairy.
Look above, and if you’re in luck, you might spot the fairy fire truck.
Across the footbridge, in the playground in a fig, Freddy and Figgy fairy live.
Shh! Their home is their castle where they sleep all day till silver starlight sings them out to play. Please be quiet as a mouse and never ever touch their house.
Each fairy house is occupied by a fairy who shares a positive message about being kind and loving, or about living simply or protecting nature. Be sure to read the small signs located near each fairy house. Regardless of your age, they are sure to create positive joyous feelings.
The Brunswick Fairy trail has been so popular that many of the local shops have taken the Fairy Godmothers lead and installed miniature themed fairy houses in their shop. So be sure to look in each shop window as you walk by.
We visited with our 6-year-old girl/boy twins. The sheer delight on each of their faces far outweighed the lack of parking available on the Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail. It was like a real life treasure hunt, with so many beautiful treasures to be found.
Have you stumbled upon a fairy house? Where was it?
