Brooms Head

Brooms Head is a beachfront town offering pristine beaches, nestled in the heath land of Yuraygir National Park. Originally known as Cakora Point, the name Brooms Head was first used in 1870, when a broom thought to have come from the wreck of the schooner 'Eureka', was washed up on the beach. It has become a popular holiday destination for families, surfers and nature lovers.

The town has a selection of accommodation including its caravan park with cabins and powered campsites next to the beach or holiday units for rent. Enjoy a meal at the local bowls club.

Brooms Head: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Brooms Head Main Beach

This breathtaking, unspoilt, uncrowded beach is nestled in a pocket of heath land surrounded by Yuraygir National Park.

A relaxing place for families and visitors of all age groups to get away from the hustle and bustle. Apart from the obvious pastime of just relaxing in this gorgeous setting there are a number of points of interest on and around this beach. The lookout offers panoramic views of the coastline and National Park. This is also a wonderful vantage point for whale watching. Pods of dolphins often play in the surf below the lookout. A leisurely beach walk will reveal many treasures washed up from the ocean depths or exploration of the rook pool at low tide may uncover a multitude of colourful marine life.

Angourie Blue Pool

The Angourie Blue Pool is extremely deep and is a very popular swimming hole. There is a walking track to the Angourie Blue Pool from the car park area at the eastern end of The Crescent, Angourie.

The rock shelf separating the pools from the ocean is an interesting area to explore and families often picnic around the picturesque freshwater pools.

As the Pool is subject to naturally occurring algae on occasion, which could prevent swimming, we encourage visitors to get in contact with Clarence Valley Council in relation to the water condition at the time, and check for Council's signs at the entrance, which advises visitors of the current swimming and water conditions.

Angourie Beach

Angourie Beach was declared a National Surfing Reserve in 2007, the second site in Australia to be recognised for its significance to recreational surfing and, as such, is considered sacred by Australian surfers.

If the NSW North Coast can be said to have a half dozen legendary point-breaks, Angourie is undoubtedly one of them. 'Discovered' in the 1960s by the first generation of Australia's surfing counter-culture, Angourie remained relatively unheralded for the next three decades.

Famous these days for being Aussie surfing legend Nat Young's home break, Angourie remains a pristine environment bordered by the Yuraygir National Park. The swell needs only be one or two metres for the point to start breaking, at which stage it's rideable for surfers of most abilities, but anything bigger should only be tackled by confident board-riders.
