The Broulee Island Nature Reserve is connected to the mainland by a permanent sandbar. You can walk across this land bridge from the south end of Broulee Beach and enjoy spectacular marine scenery, vibrant native plants and marine birdlife. You may even be lucky enough to spot a whale, particularly between the months of May to November.
Situated between the coastal towns of Batemans Bay and Moruya, and just ten minutes’ drive from the inland village of Mogo, Broulee is a tranquil town ideal for a seaside stay. This small hamlet packs plenty of attractions, including gorgeous beaches, stunning ocean-front walks and historical nearby towns.
Broulee Beach is well protected and generally calm. The sand dips gradually, which makes it a family favourite for swimming. Surrounding beaches are good for swimming. To the north, there are several small and secluded coves with fine beaches. Tomakin Cove is great for snorkelling, and those keen on diving should head to Burrewarra Point. There’s great fishing on offer, with the beautiful, broad Tomaga River and wetlands providing the ideal breeding ground for whiting, flathead and bream.
To the south, Broulee Beach forms an isthmus to the Broulee Island nature reserve. A walk to the island itself is a must, beginning south of the main beach at Broulee, you walk across a permanent sand bar to the island. With beautiful ocean views, it’s also a great vantage point for whale watching. You’ll find the best surf conditions in the area at the southern end of Broulee Beach known as ‘Pink Rocks’. It’s recommended you only venture into the waves here if you’re an experienced surfer.
