Beautiful, rugged and wind-swept, Broughton Island sits 8 nautical miles north east of Port Stephens.
With a history that dates back over 300 million years, Broughton features fascinating mix of everything from incredible Volcanic peaks to stunning white, sandy beaches. The wildlife is just as diverse as the landscape. Broughton is home to the endangered Green & Golden Bell frog, and active breeding site for Muttonbirds and is a nesting ground for adorable little penguins. As we follow the well-worn walking tracks take in the spectacular views, spot some of the natural inhabitants and hear stories of early settlers,- during warmer months, treat yourself to a quick dip in the crystal clear waters of a sheltered cove, & during winter, take a look out for the magnificent Humpback Whales as they migrate past our coast.
