Broken Head is a picturesque piece of coastline, framed by 98 hectares of nature reserve, perfect for swimming, surfing, picnics or walking, just 2 minutes drive from Suffolk Park, 10 minutes drive from Byron Bay and approximately 15kms south of the iconic Cape Byron headland.
OVERVIEW & NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
Accessed via a bush road bordered by rainforest, Broken Head is made up of 98 hectares of nature reserve which stretches over the tall headland, with stunning panoramic views.
The Broken Head Nature Reserve is jointly managed with the traditional custodians of this land, the Arakwal people and is the home of the legendary Three Sisters Rock - the rocky outcrop featured in the Bundjalung people’s cautionary dreamtime tale.
Picturesque, peaceful and unspoilt, the Broken Head coastline boasts a collection of secluded bays and coves, accessible only by foot.
The beach here is wide, inviting and framed by the National Park, meaning the waters are protected and family-friendly.
THINGS TO DO AT BROKEN HEAD
Swimming & Surfing
Bring the family for a swim at this popular, safe and protected beach. Frolic in the peaceful coves, bays, and rock pools scattered along the shore or bring your board to surf the right-hand wave which peels fast from the headland.
A picnic area with BBQs and full facilities means you can make a day of it and share a meal with your friends and family at this picturesque location.
Three Sisters Walking Track
Walk 1.3kms through the most spectacular rainforest along the Three Sisters walking track and see the rocks made famous by the Indigenous tale of three sisters. In winter, this is also the point from where you might spot whales on their annual migration.
