The Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve is a protected nature reserve located in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia. The 221-hectare (550-acre) reserve is situated near Brunswick Heads and contains an intact segment of littoral rainforest.

Much of the Australian littoral rainforests have been destroyed for agriculture, mining or housing. Species of tree include Tuckeroo, Three-veined Laurel, Myrtle Ebony, Wild Quince, Moreton Bay Fig, Broad-leaf Lilly Pilly and Riberry. The rare Stinking Cryptocarya and Scented Acronychia are known from this area.[2]
