Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre, Sydney Suburbs

The Broken Bay Centre offers a delightful combination of beach and bush. Situated on 400 hectares of bushland reserve at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River, the Centre has spectacular views towards Lion Island, Barrenjoey Lighthouse and Patonga Beach.

Accessible by water only, your adventure begins when you board the ferry for the scenic ride to the Centre on the waters of Broken Bay. Ferries depart from Patonga, Brooklyn or Palm Beach for the 15 minute ride.

Guests can enjoy the bushland walking trails and discover Aboriginal rock carvings and an abundance of native flora and fauna, including lyrebirds and wallabies. For those seeking a challenge, you can tackle abseiling, rock climbing, or the ropes course. Other facilities include archery, beach volleyball, fencing, flying fox and access to a gymnasium. Otherwise, you can simply relax on the beach!

In addition to the extensive outdoor education program and activities, Broken Bay offers day programs for company training, conferences and presentations.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
