Kayaking Broughton Island

Sea Kayaking at Broughton Island

Map of Broughton Island
Part of Myall Lakes National Park, Broughton Island is 2km long and 125 hectares and is the largest of New South Wales’ coastal islands. Kayaking to Broughton Island involves paddling in open waters; as with any activities on open waters, be aware of your abilities and experience, check weather and conditions beforehand, and advise someone of your plans.

Getting there: The closest port is Port Stevens 15km to the southwest (2 ½ hours north of Sydney by car); boat cruise companies operate tours to the island and surrounds.

Camping: Esmeralda Beach and Little Poverty Beach have camping and basic toilet facilities; carry drinking water.
