Reviews of Broken Bay

Only around fifty kilometres away from the biggest Australian city Sydney, Broken Bay is a magical place of escape.

My suggestion:

If you have this opportunity, take advantage of a boat to discover the endless nooks and crannies of this wild bay and submerse yourself in excellently protected coves.


I was lucky enough to be able to discover this place to the north of Sydney on board a boat, and this remains today one of my most striking experiences during my time spent in Australia. This bay represents in my opinion the very identity of the city of Sydney, in contact between the sea and nature, between green forest which literally throws itself into the turquoise sea.

For those who will spend a few days in Sydney, it's more than recommended to discover the surroundings of the city, and in this sense, Broken Bay could turn out to be an ideal holiday spot with several possibilities for camping or for swimming in almost private beaches. In the summer, the site can get a bit too busy due to its proximity to Sydney, and of course its beauty.
