Broken Head is the JEWEL IN THE CROWN, Bryon Shire Mayor – Simon Richardson
Broken Head Beach is a nature lover’s paradise – a biodiverse hotspot, an unspoilt gemstone. From the sacred Ti-Tree Lake of the local Arakwal people to the 6 1/2 kms of stunning beach to Byron Lighthouse, from the spectacular Headland Walk to the 98 hectares of coastal nature reserve beyond, Broken Head is an unmatched piece of pristine coastline in NSW. And it’s yours to explore…
One thing you MUST DO when staying at SeaSpray is take the Headland Walk – a stunning 1.6km trail where you can view right up and down the coast, observe dolphins playing in the waves or during migration season, humpbacks can be spotted on their relentless march up and down the eastern seaboard. If you really want to explore the area, take a drive down 7 mile beach road, (a few hundred metres from SeaSpray). It’s a windy gravel road with numerous spots you can get out and take the steep tracks down to the secluded coves and beaches of King’s, White’s or Bray’s.
Broken Head beach itself provides one of the area’s top surfing breaks – read more about that HERE. The most protected and safest spot for a swim is in the ‘nook’ of Broken Head beach nestled close to the headland. Like ALL beaches, be aware there are rips and channels. On the beach itself and around the headland there are great places to fish, snorkel and swim. At low tide, the rock pools provide the kids plenty of interest.
Of course the greatest thing about Broken Head’s seclusion is that Byron is a mere 10 minute drive away. Better still the area’s best bakery cafe, local tavern, pharmacy, several take aways, a post office & a supermarket are at Suffolk Park – just 2 mins drive or 15 mins via our secret bike track. And in Byron you will find lots to do with a range of restaurants, cheap eats, bars, cafes, eclectic shops and plenty of nightlife with local theatre, cinema & several venues for live music. And the best thing? After all that, you can still retreat to your sanctuary at SeaSpray and enjoy the tranquility of Broken Head.
