Suburb Overview

Ocean Shores is a coastal town in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia. Since being established in the early 1970s it has grown to a reasonable size town. Originally Ocean Shores was a land holding owned by reclusive billionaire D.K.Ludwig with backing from American evangelical country singer Pat Boone . Lots were sold by Michael Hand, Frank Nugan and Bernie Houghton of what would later become the notorious Nugan Hand bank. It is the largest town north of Byron Bay in the Byron Shire and second largest in the shire. It is located in the Brunswick Valley - a valley including the towns of Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads. The town has a local shopping complex and a large golf course which weaves through the town. At the 2006 census, Ocean Shores had a population of 3,856 people.

Thunderstorms and flash floods are the most common events though gale force winds are recorded a few times a year.

The Local New Brighton Farmers

The Ocean Shores Arts Expo began in 2004 when a group of residents who had come together during the Pacific Highway planning controversy decided to create something uplifting, creative and positive for the community. Lions of Brunswick/Mullumbimby straight away supported the project as a worthy cultural event to bring community together, and provided funding and many willing hands to help. Local history has been an important corner stone of the Expo every year with our local historian Frank Mills. The ArtExpo has taken place over a weekend in August every year. The next ArtExpo will be in 2012. The venue is the Ocean Shores Primary School, Shara Blvd, North Ocean Shores. Patrons can view art and sculpture, listen to local musicians and enjoy drinks and nibbles. Then over the weekend there are local musicians performing, art demonstrations, the Youth art show, a community artwork, and the Artists
