Broughton Island

Camping at Little Poverty Beach is a truly special experience. Located on Broughton Island, you'll be camping amongst an active seabird colony- it's a key breeding site for wedge-tailed shearwaters.

There are plenty of opportunities for water activities, including swimming, fishing, boating, snorkelling and scuba diving. You'll find sandy beaches within Esmeralda Cove.

With only five campsites, you'll feel like you own the island. The campground is fairly basic, so you'll have to bring all your equipment and supplies with you, including water. You must book and pre-pay for a campsite prior to arriving at the island.
