Box Head is a not a suburb but a coastal locality of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia in the Central Coast Council local government area.
It is a part of Bouddi National Park, and contains several beaches including Iron Ladder Beach and Tallow Beach. The headland itself marks the northern entrance to Broken Bay from the Tasman Sea. Box Head refers to the large headland that viewed from the ocean resembles a box. This part of the coastland was first sighted by Europeans under James Cook, who named features of the area such as Cape Three Points and Broken Bay prior to his discovery of Botany Bay.
