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.
Brooms Head has a timeless quality about it. Uncrowded beaches, friendly locals, away from the hustle & bustle, you’ll find The Broom to be perfect for a family holiday.
The beaches are perfect for surfers, fishermen and families and the views from the headland are truly breathtaking.
