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.

Byron Beach Retreats The Boardwalk Aerial View

The famed surf of Broken Head Beach is 1 minute from in The Boardwalk, The Beach House and The Bungalow. 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
  • Broken Head and Byron Shire’s eclectic mix of communities and villages are nearby
  • There is so much to explore, so much to enjoy in the immediate vicinity

Any wonder these hidden gems of Broken Head are often referred to as “best kept secrets”?

Most beautiful, luxurious place we have ever stayed!It had all of the things that we enjoyed such as bikes, yoga mats and chairs to relax in on the deck that overlooked the gorgeous gardens. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to a friend and I will be staying here again in the future for a lovely getaway.

We really enjoyed our stay it was awesome!! Close proximity to the beach and the house itself was beyond belief!!

From the moment we opened the door we were greeted with beautiful high ceilings, stunning timber floors and an AMAZING lush tropical garden where you could hear the waves crashing on the shore. This property is truly magical…

The property is of excellent quality and presented in immaculate condition. The wildlife is wonderful and there are beautiful walking tracks through the national park practically right at your back door.

A definite highlight was the ability to open up the doors off the studio and enjoy the natural surroundings including the sound of the ocean with the beach being a minute away! We absolutely loved every minute of our stay and found that the location was perfect…

We enjoyed so many things…. but an absolute highlight was watching the dolphins and whales from the lookout off broken head ….a gorgeous walk!!

…Above all it’s the serenity that sets this place apart as it’s seems to be engulfed but it’s own private rain forest.
