Bayside Residents Association Inc.

A united voice dedicated to building a strong and vibrant community 


About Us

Bayside Residents Association Inc. is a registered Australian non-profit organisation aiming to deliver a positive, collective voice on issues impacting the Bayside Brunswick Heads area, representing the interests of all residents and working to make it a great place to live for everyone.

A word from the President

As one of the largest growth points in the Byron Shire it is exciting times for Bayside Brunswick Heads. There is strong appetite and enthusiasm to be part of the development of this diverse residential community.

We are currently engaged in a membership drive to represent as many voices as possible in the area. We have plans to work together to improve the area and keep up to date on developments, delivering a collective voice on issues impacting us. Apart from anything else, it is a great way to get to know your neighbours.

I am pleased to be part of the Association bringing my experience of 23 years as the Managing Director of a large, not-for-profit organisation covering the Northern Rivers and Gold Coast, recently serving as Secretary to the Byron Community Centre Management Committee for six years and participating in the Old Byron Hospital Advisory Group.

I hope you can join us to be part of the future of this growing suburb.

Yours truly, 

Peter Tanner

Information on developments 

Flood pods 

We have new temporary, flood affected residents in our Brunswick Heads Village on Bayside’s green space and on Oniva's boarding house site. 

As we come towards the end of the lease Bayside Residents Association will work with Council to look at how the green space can be returned to the community with improvements.


Our neighbourhood is set to more than double in size with a DA approved by Council for 123 residential blocks South of the pre-school ranging from 450 to 965sqm and three small medium density sites. Click the link above for more information.
