Northern Broadwater Picnic Area

Situated on the sandy northern shores of Bombah Broadwater, this secluded spot is fringed with majestic paperbarks. With its sheltered shallow waters, Northern Broadwater picnic area is an ideal swimming spot for the little ones. It makes for a great family day trip and a wonderful introduction to the natural beauty of Myall Lakes National Park, just a short drive from Bulahdelah.

The kids will love swimming and liloing while you take in the delightful views of the water. Unroll the picnic blanket and enjoy a leisurely lunch, then sit back under the shade of the whispering she-oaks and relax. If you’re feeling lucky, cast a line for some fishing.

The vast open lake areas are also a haven for birdlife. Be sure to look for the white-faced heron and elegant black swans that inhabit these tranquil waters. After lunch stretch your legs along Mining Road fire trail / Old Gibber Road fire trail or stay overnight at Boomeri campground.
