Bruxner Highway

Bruxner Highway

The Bruxner Highway is one of the more obscure State highways in New South Wales, Australia. It forms an east-west link from the Northern Rivers coast, across the New England Tablelands in northern New South Wales, close to the border with Queensland. It is named after Michael Bruxner, member for Northern Tablelands and Tenterfield from 1920 to 1962, leader of the New South Wales Country Party for almost all that period and Deputy Premier and Minister for Transport from 1932 to 1941.

The Bruxner Highway starts at its junction with the Pacific Highway at Ballina and links Lismore, Casino, Tenterfield, Bonshaw and Boggabilla and terminates there.

It forms an important link between Ballina and Lismore, and to a lesser extent Casino and Lismore. At Yetman the Fossickers Way meets the Bruxner.

The road travels through the main street at Alstonville, although a bypass is planned. South of Texas the highway crosses the Dumaresq River.
