Broughton Island lies just 12 nautical miles offshore and forms part of Myall Lakes National Park north of Port Stephens in NSW. The island has low volcanic peaks, windswept vegetation and deserted beaches and is an oasis for thriving shearwater, silver gull and tern rookeries, and close to the northern limit of the little penguin.
The island offers many scenes of pristine beauty. For example, at Esmeralda Cove you can hand-feed big, black stingrays, swim in protected waters, stroll golden beaches and fish. Part of the beauty of Broughton Island is its remote and wild nature. Take a sandy path that winds through blade grass, bracken, brush and box and be sure to stop and admire vistas reminiscent of the west coast of Tasmania.
