In 1770, intrepid British explorer Capt. James Cook landed at Broken Bay during his voyages across the Pacific. What he found were beautiful beaches, lush landscapes and the aboriginal inhabitants who called this place home. Today, the area is known as a destination for the affluent, where celebrities live and those with cash play. Palm Beach, located on the same peninsula near where the aforementioned captain landed, is also a popular filming spot for films and television shows, notably the soap opera series Home and Away . Visitors won’t have to afford a mansion to enjoy Palm Beach, as the beaches offer enough room for those of any income.
