Your guide to New Brighton
All About New Brighton
New Brighton is a rural New South Wales township located on the Pacific coastline surrounded by several nature reserves, national parks, and many kilometers of rocky white sand beaches that are popular with surfers. With a population of only a few hundred residents, New Brighton offers the chance to unplug away from the crowds and enjoy nature.
Within the town, you can check out one of the several modern cafes, seafood restaurants, and farmer's markets located throughout the central business district. Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve protects New Brighton's natural beauty close to the centre of town, and recreational opportunities here include surfing, hiking, birdwatching, lounging on the beach, cycling, canoeing, and picnicking. If you have access to a car, you can take day trips to other Byron Shire towns like palm tree-lined Mullumbimby and the vibrant Byron Bay, or to notable natural sites like the Minyon Falls Lookout.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in New Brighton
New Brighton's coastal climate is warm throughout the year, with the summer and fall months bringing a moderate amount of rain. If ocean-bound activities and water recreation bring you to the area, the hot summer months are the best for swimming and playing on the extensive coastlines New Brighton has to offer. The shoulder seasons may prove to be the best time to book a New Brighton accommodation if the national parks and nature reserves interest you, as this is when mild temperatures and sunny skies provide the ideal conditions for nature walks and inland exploration. Cool breezes and low humidity make for an enjoyable winter, and the nights don’t require more than a few warm layers.
Top things to do in New Brighton
New Brighton Beach
New Brighton beach is an expansive stretch of pristine coastline easily accessible from anywhere in town. The beach makes for a great afternoon of playing in the water or sunbathing with turquoise waters and soft white sand. The shore here is seldom busy and tends to attract surfers who like to get away from the crowds of the more popular spots up and down the coast.
Several public golf courses in the area offer fairways bordered by nature reserves, rivers, or are mere steps from the beach. For easy access, check out the courses located right in town, or head further inland to get closer to the many surrounding national parks. The proximity of many of the courses to other forms of outdoor recreation allows additional opportunities to be among nature when finished with your game for the day.
Located a short way inland and technically in the Ocean Shores community, Waterlily Park hosts several nature-inspired playgrounds, along with outdoor exercise equipment and picnic areas. The main attraction here are the hundreds of meters of walking paths that wind through the park and its surrounding forested areas that are also accessible for wheelchairs, bikes, and inline skates.
