Brooms Head is a beachfront town offering pristine beaches, nestled in the heathland of Yuraygir National Park. A regular holiday destination for Clarence Valley locals, Brooms Head really is a hidden treasure – it's a beach hideaway that’s as perfect as anything you could imagine.
Cakora Point is often the first and last point of call for a visitor to Brooms Head, as it provides awe-inspiring aspects of the coastline, and is a fantastic spot to look out for whales and dolphins.
A few kilometres northwards of Brooms, along a sweeping arc of golden beach, lies the Redcliff/Lake Arragan area, which is a must-visit while you’re in the vicinity. You’re practically guaranteed to see kangaroos here, and the cliffs (yes, they’re very red), the beaches and the rockpools make this a beachlover’s wonderland. Don’t forget your canoe or kayak as Lake Arragan is a top spot for a paddle too.
Brooms Head is the kind of spot where families have parked their caravans in the same spot every holiday for generations. There’s something reassuringly old-fashioned about the rows of campsites and caravans, canvas annexes flapping in the afternoon sea breeze.
Keep an eye out for the wild brumby that’s often spotted near the village, visible from the Brooms Head Bowling Club or the bridge. An iconic creature in local history!
The beaches are perfect for surfers, fishermen and families and the views from the headland are truly breathtaking.
