Broken Head Byron Bay – Visitor’s Guide

//

Ready to start ticking off your Bucket List? Join one of my EPIC Group Trips in 2022!

Broken Head Byron Bay has some of the most secluded and most beautiful beaches in the Northern New South Wales region. If Main Beach in Byron Bay is too crowded for you then I recommend heading south to discover the magic of these almost untouched beaches!

I have put together this complete guide of Broken Head including how to get there and what to expect when you arrive.

HOW TO GET HERE

Getting around Byron Bay and visiting all the spots is best done by car or bicycle. Public buses are limited and taxi services are overpriced.

You will find that quite a lot of people hitchhike in Byron so why not give that a go if you’re up for it!

BEST TIME TO VISIT

The best time to visit is in the summer months which is December to February. However, this is also peak season nationwide for most beach locations like this so do take this into account when booking accommodation.

If you want to avoid the crowds, you can visit after the summer anywhere between March to June and you will be surprised how much sunshine this region of Australia receives, almost year-round in fact.

THINGS TO DO IN BROKEN HEAD

Surfing the beach breaks is a great way to start the day. Being out in the ocean at Broken Head Beach will have you gawping at the epic surroundings of cliffs and small rocky islands that give this place its name.

You can explore the winding walking trail that leads you up and over the headland which is surrounded by lush rainforest.

This track will lead you to a number of smaller almost unknown isolated beaches and coves. You won’t find these spots in any glossy travel guide and I guarantee you will be blown away at the sight of these little pockets of paradise.

Apart from exploring the headland and taking photos of the landscapes from the hilltop, the best thing to do at Broken Head is to take a dip in the ocean and cool off.
