Brooms Head is one of those distinctive beachfront villages that are becoming rare. Originally known as Cakora Point, the name Brooms Head was first used in 1870, when a broom thought to have come from the wreck of the schooner ‘Eureka’, was washed up on the beach. These days many locals affectionately refer to “The Broom” as their favourite holiday destination.
Nestled in the heathland of Yuraygir National Park, Brooms Head has a timeless quality – pristine beaches, friendly locals, away from the hustle and bustle.
Brooms Head has a wide selection of accommodation to choose from. The caravan park is located right next to the main beach and quality B & Bs and great holiday units guarantee a relaxing and comfortable stay.
The local bowls club has a restaurant for those wanting to dine out, a general store where you can grab a tasty snack or lunch and a fast-food shop by the beach serving great burgers and delicious fish and chips.
There are a number of points of interest in and around Brooms Head. Go up to the lookout and take in the panorama – it’s also a wonderful vantage point for whale and dolphin watching.
There are some great fishing spots at the base of this headland. “Schnapper Rock” is one that the locals will point out to you. Launch a canoe on Lake Cakora and you’ll find that the lake extends quite a distance behind the dunes. Jabirus, swans and a variety of other wading birds live on the mud-flats.
Mud-crabs abound in this watery haven and the fishing is good. If you enjoy deep-sea fishing, you can launch a boat at the southern end of main beach. South of the boat ramp is a great spot for snorkelling.
