Broughton Island is located within the boundary of Myall Lakes National Park in the southern part of the Barrington Coast. It is only accessible by boat. You can do a daytrip from Nelson Bay with a local cruise operator or sail your own boat across to the island. Daytrip sailors love this island for its beautiful beaches, you'll be sure to find one that's suitable in any weather conditions.
Take a hamper for a beach picnic then swim and snorkel the crystal clear waters. Camping on Broughton Island is a truly special experience. With just five campsites you'll need to book ahead but the reward is a unique camping experience amongst an active seabird colony - it's a key breeding site for wedge tailed shearwaters. The campground is basic, so please bring all your equipment and supplies with you, including water.
Around the island are endless opportunities for water activities, including swimming, fishing, boating, snorkelling and scuba diving.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
