Brule shore is located on Amet Sound an embayment of the Northumberland Strait, 6 kilometres east of the village of Tatamagouche. The community is situated on the southern shore of Brule Harbour opposite Brule Point.
Brule is famous for numerous fossil discoveries. The Brule Fossil Centre (located in the Creamery Square in Tatamagouche) contains examples of local finds including track ways that are 290 million years old. A diorama and interactive display focus on creatures from the Permian Era that might have made the tracks discovered on a beach at Brule (near Tatamagouche) in 1994. The discovery of these fossilized footprints has received recognition and support from the National Geographic Society. Fossils of Walchia, a coniferous tree from the same ancient period, indicate that the world’s only known Walchia Forest existed at Brule.
Brule is also home to Brule Point Golf Course.
