Finding Fairies, Fairy Trail
Fairies, the magical, whimsical and invisible human-like creatures with wings, touch most people's lives in some way. For some, it may have only been a tooth fairy coming to collect your tooth debts whilst you were unaware, usually visiting during the night. With a flick of some pixie dust, your baby tooth was replaced by a gold coin.
If you are a believer of fairies or a parent of children who believe in fairies, you may be interested to know that in the Northern NSW coastal town of Brunswick Heads, fairies have been discovered by human folks. In fact, when holidaying in the Byron Shire, NSW we decided to visit Brunswick Heads to spot the fairies, who have become visible to humans for some reason. Most likely, these fairies wanted to increase people's connection to the natural world.
Can you see the Maleluca Fairy?
Fortunately, we already had access to a complimentary mud map from our accommodation providers. If you are seeking a Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail guide, you can request an (up-to-date) clue sheet from the Brunswick Heads Visitor's Centre. Grab your sneakers, you won't have to go far from the Visitor Centre to find Fiery Fairies, Polly the Helper and Helianthus Fairy, only to name only a few. There are a number of miniature fairy habitats which are beautifully handcrafted by recycled and found objects and maintained by the invisible Fairy Godmother.
