Broulee Island is a beautiful, pristine spot in the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is a 2 hour drive for Canberrans or 300km for Sydney-siders. It is a better alternative to Bateman’s Bay, the usual hot-spot for Canberrans (as it is the closest coastal town).
The Island is accessible by a permanent sand-bar from South Broulee Beach, which has a big carpark. South Broulee is an awesome beach, and was filled with surfers and paddle-boarders.
Whilst you can take the sandy route to the island, it is awesome to walk across the rocks, and look at the rock formations (and for crabs!).
There must have been a storm before my visit, as both Broulee beach and the island were covered in blue bottle Jellyfish!
Nonetheless, we treaded carefully along the rocks until we got to the beautiful, crystal clear waters of Broulee Island. We walked through the nature reserve for 2 hours (4km), listening to the variety of bird calls and looking at the vast array of greenery.
The water was flat as a tack. The beach is perfect for sunbathing, snorkelling or walking.
