Find holiday rentals in Broken Head, New South Wales

A quiet location offering an opportunity to get away from it all, Broken Head has beautiful beaches suitable for all the family yet is only minutes away from fabulous Byron Bay.

Broken Head is part of New South Wales’s Northern Rivers region, close to the state border with Queensland. On its doorstep are world-class beaches, awe-inspiring rainforests and hinterlands, and one of Australia’s most amazing towns in Byron Bay.

Its position on the coastline makes Broken Head an excellent destination for those seeking a typical Australian beach holiday and it can provide a fine selection of holiday rentals to suit all budgets.

The shore thing

Only a 15-minute drive south of Byron Bay, Broken Head has some of the bay’s most beautiful and secluded beaches, far from the madding crowds of the popular town. Close to Suffolk Park, like its neighbour it is part of the wider residential suburbs of Byron Bay but can provide a little haven of peace for visitors.

Much of the holiday accommodation available here fronts on to the shore, providing gorgeous sea views and excellent access to the long, unbroken stretches of sand. Most of the beach is suitable for families and children, though there are some areas where the surf is a little more dangerous. The beach also had a nudist section, so do be aware of that when you’re setting off to sunbathe!

The bush and rainforests stretch right down to the shoreline and offer a terrific opportunity to see Australia’s natural flora and fauna in the most natural setting. The Northern Rivers region is known as the most bio-diverse in all of Australia with five World Heritage listed national parks within the area.

The Rainforest Way is a series of drives that will introduce you to some of the area’s most beautiful rainforests and parks, while Mount Warning National Park - about an hour’s drive from Broken Head – is one of the most remarkable sites, the caldera of a volcano some 20 million years old.

A brilliant beacon

Cape Byron is the most easterly point of Australia and its lighthouse is one of the must-see things to do when visiting Byron Bay. And, of course, Byron Bay itself is a wonderful place – packed with boutique shops, eclectic art galleries, top-class restaurants and hip bars. Its beaches are a magnet for surfers and those who love water sports, scuba diving and fishing.

Byron Bay is also known as the best place in Australia for alternative healing therapies and there are many day spas, therapists and healers in operation.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay, Broken Head provides a quiet haven for travellers with its excellent choice of holiday rentals.

Cloud busting

Broken Head enjoys the sub-tropical climate typical of the Northern Rivers region. Expect hot and rainy summers with temperatures averaging around 29?C from December to February. Winters are cool and dry, though the mercury will rarely dip below 20?C – do expect chillier evenings during the winter months. If you’re unused to the searing heat of the southern hemisphere, do take care with sunscreen and wear a hat if necessary. Look for holiday accommodation with air conditioning to alleviate the worst of the humid nights.

Getting here

UK travellers heading to Broken Head and the Byron area can get direct flights to either Sydney or Brisbane from London’s Heathrow Airport. From both cities you can pick up a connecting flight that will take you to either Ballina or Gold Coast International Airport – both are around 40 minutes’ drive from Broken Head but if you aren’t organising car rental, regular coach services will deliver you to your holiday accommodation.

Perfect in every way. Can't recommend highly enough!

5 of 5
This cottage set on a beautiful property is the ideal tranquil getaway. Accessed via a dirt road it is about a 10 minute drive from Byron Bay central. The hosts are exceptional leaving us eggs and chocolate on arrival while being approachable and accommodating throughout our stay. The property is superb set amongst several trees and adjacent to the owners' house with free range chickens wandering in the garden creating a great atmosphere. I never want to go to the same place twice but might make an exception this time around!

Pure relaxation in luxury surroundings.

We didn't want to leave as the property has everything you need and more!. This is a really beautiful property which is surrounded by a magnificent garden that holds the space and the privacy perfectly. Super comfortable beds with quality linen made for the best night sleep I have had in a long time. It is all the little touches that makes this a really special place. The owner, Melissa, was an absolute delight to deal with. Thank you so much, we will certainly be back.
