getting here

You will find us about 600 kilometres north of Sydney and just 300 kilometres south of Brisbane. The Pacific Highway is the major highway accessing the Clarence Coast.

To get to Brooms Head turn off the Pacific Highway at Ferry Park. Travel towards Maclean for about 800 metres, then turn right. Brooms Head is a 24 kilometre drive. Along the way, you can often see kangaroos and wallabies grazing on the roadside. You may be lucky enough to see an endangered coastal emu.

Or, to get map directions, simply add your location to the google maps below. We have added Grafton as an example to show you how it works!

by road

Grafton is the hub of a major road transport network where the Pacific Highway meets the Gwydir Highway (going west) and the Summerland Way (going north).

Recent and on-going upgrades to the Pacific Highway have made road access from Brisbane and Sydney (and everything in between) a breeze.

The Gwydir Highway provides access from the Glenn Innes and the New England area and the Summerland Way is an easy, hinterland alternative from Brisbane in the north and Coffs Harbour in the south.

by rail

Grafton is a major stop on the Sydney to Brisbane passenger and freight rail link network. Countrylink provides daily XPT passenger services between Sydney and Brisbane.
