Ever felt sick of your routine? Craving for a break that won't have you filing for bankruptcy? Want to go somewhere different and exciting? If you answered "yes", then Broken Bay is for you!

Broken Bay is a small island in the Hawkesbury River. The journey itself is relaxing, starting with a short drive from Sydney to Brooklyn, where you catch a ferry to the island. In Brooklyn you can treat yourself to a mouth-watering meal cooked fresh on the riverside restaurants, while you wait for your ferry to arrive. The ferry itself offers picture perfect views of the surrounding islands. Not only that but the feeling of wind rushing through your hair with the slightest bit of water spray in your face is enough to make anyone feel exhilarated.

Doesn't get any better than this

Broken Bay caters to a range of activities. You can book either a lodge or a self-contained two-bedroom unit that has been designed to incorporate both comfort and a sense of being at one with nature. Start your day with a walk on any of the numerous walking paths that take you through the bush. The island also has an indoor recreational centre where you can enjoy a range of games. After all that activity a refreshing dip in the clear blue water is just what the doctor ordered.

Later you can satisfy your hunger with a good ol' barbie at the facilities near the island's oval playing field. All in all it's the perfect place for a weekend getaway with family and friends, or a great place for your business to organise team-building activities. So the only question left is, what are you waiting for?

Broken Bay is the name of the camp but I don't think that it is on an island. Note that Broken Bay is the Bay at the mouth of the Kawkesbury River north of Sydney. Pittwater is it's southern arm.
