Broken Head is an excellent righthand point break that can get world-class when it all comes together. Very reliant on sandbanks it can go months without breaking and then suddenly turn on with some of the best barrels on the coast.
Once the word is out, it will get crowded. There is only one or two take off spots so it can create a bit of aggro on crowded days. If you do score a good wave here you will remember it for a long time to come.
Also, check out the beach breaks out the front of the caravan park, they can produce quality waves when the banks are right, often best on a higher tide.
The rip at Broken is a beauty, it can make the fittest man buckle so fuel up and be prepared to paddle!
Broken Head is its own little village with a caravan park and a few houses at the end of the road. Just south of Suffolk Park, it is easy to find by taking the signposted turn off the main road and go to the end, about 3km.
