Hidden gems of Broken Head accommodation

Finding a private escape that is high-end luxe but also warm and welcoming can take you to some magnificently out of the way places, but Byron Beach Retreats’ Broken Head accommodation gems nest right alongside Broken Head National Park, just 5 minutes from Byron.

The famed surf of Broken Head Beach is 1 minute from The Bungalow ,  The Beach House and The Boardwalk. The beach is fringed by rare Australian coastal bushland, adding to the privacy.

This style of Broken Head accommodation provides all the exclusive luxury appointments. Everything about it has that certain je ne sais quoi that marks a true gem – the contemporary, comfortable interiors, open layouts, the lawns and gardens running down to meet the national park. How can something so languid and luxuriously hidden be so close to the famed restaurants, bars and cafes of Byron Bay?

Leaving the unique bustle of Byron behind and driving down Broken Head Reserve Road toward the national park is the first clue that your decision to stay in Broken Head accommodation will be richly rewarded. On approach, it becomes apparent that accommodation in Broken Head is limited, adding to the appeal.

If you’ve never been to Broken Head or the Northern Rivers region, there are no words to describe the actual experience of this area. All who enter fall under its charms. Walk north along Broken Head Beach to an icon of the region, the Cape Byron Lighthouse and take in the mesmerising views.

Walk into Broken Head Nature Reserve to a spectacular lookout, The Three Sisters, who get their name from a traditional dreamtime story of the Arakwal aboriginal peoples of the area.

Broken Head’s accommodation is tucked away but right next door to a wonderful coastal panorama of secluded beaches, rocky coves and dense rainforest. The birds, wildflowers, serenity and peaceful, romantic nature of this private part of the world have a nurturing effect on those who stay here. The cruiser bikes and surfboards come in very handy for exploring Broken Head, but if you want to take a short scenic drive, it’s just 15 minutes to Bangalow, Lennox Head, and the Byron Hinterland.

Byron Beach Retreats’ Broken Head accommodation is suitable for variety of guests needs, with up to 14 guests in The Boardwalk, perfect for multiple families to getaway, intimate gatherings and retreats are considered by management.  The Beach House accommodates up to 7 guests, mostly small groups and families. The Bungalow is popular with honeymooners and couples wanting a secluded getaway.

Just to recap on the authenticity of these Broken Head accommodation gems:

  • Privacy is paramount
  • The location is absolute beachfront bordering tropical rainforest and national park
  • There’s a scenic Ti Tree lake
  • The properties are luxurious and immaculately finished, with huge tropical gardens
  • The wonderful world of Byron Bay is 5 minutes drive away
