Broughton Island Freediving & Camping Adventure

Join Michaela on an amazing adventure to the secluded BROUGHTON ISLAND. Get away from it all and enrich your freediving experience. 

PRICE: $650

($300 deposit)

1 Night, 2 DAYS

Freediving and camping on Broughton Island is a truly special experience. Located in Myall Lakes National Park, just 200km north of Sydney, we’ll be freediving for 2 days and camping for 1 night in a million star hotel, amongst an active seabird colony. You must be a confident freediver and a keen camper to participate in this adventure! 🙂
One of the highlights of the trip is freediving the Looking Glass crack – it’s a crack through the island, which extends above the water for the most part. The depth comes up from 26m to 12-18m. There is an amazing swim-through inside the cave. Grey nurse sharks are often spotted here.
With only six divers and 5 campsites on the island, we’ll feel like we own the island. 🙂

Broughton Island is an island 14 km north-east of Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia. It is part of the Myall Lakes National Park.(map)HistoryArchaeology indicates that the Worimi people inhabited the island for at least 2,000 years, but their name for it does not seem to have been recorded. It lay within the territory of the Garrawerrigal branch (nurra) of the Woromi. “Garrawerrigal” meant “the people of the sea”, from garoowa=sea. Niritba was “the home of the mutton bird” in their language.Broughton Island was seen by James Cook commanding HM Bark Endeavour on 11 May 1770: he mistook it for a headland and called it Black Head. After its insularity was discovered, it was renamed Broughton Islands, and so appears on the 1852 Admiralty chart, Australia, East Coast. Broken Bay to Sugarloaf Point, from a running survey by Captn. J. Lort Stokes, H.M.S. Acheron, 1851. Providence Bay also appears for the first time on this chart.Nearby Port Stephens was surveyed by Commander William Broughton in HMS Providence in August 1795. Stokes appears to have named the island and bay after Broughton and his ship, perhaps on the advice of his friend, Phillip Parker King, who was then residing at Tahlee in Port Stephens and had surveyed the coast in a private capacity.
