What a gem

A beautiful beach with a few surprises. Go down to the the waters edge and take the opportunity to fed the fish and you will be well rewarded.

This is a lovely beach. There is an honor system for wet suits, snorkels, boards etc. You can also purchase fish food and feed the fish. Be warned they only need to see leg near the water and they come in large numbers. Well worth the $1 to experience. Do not put your hand in weigh the food rather drop... More

The fish in this marine reserve will meet you at the beach, jumping at you as you walk into the water. You can buy some fish food from the dispenser for a dollar but several species will be just as happy to see you without feeding. It is worth hiring a mask and flippers from the trust stand on the...

The water is stunning, a deep turquoise, the sand is golden and fine and amazingly the fish come right up to the edge of the waves. There are fish pellets you can purchase for $1 to bring the fish to you. There is also scuba and snorkel equipment on loan. I have to confess it was too cold for me... More

This beach is so clean and we had it to ourselves in June 2015, full facilities for snorkelling etc. with an honesty box for payment and toilets/showers. The fish are wonderful to see, although we prefer not to feed them.

The first time I fed the fish at Ned's Beach I got more than I bargained for. There were millions (yes, millions) of Kingfish, Silver Drummers and mullet right on the shoreline. I paid my $1 for fishfood from Ned's Beach shed, and duly strode in and fed them. There was a feeding frenzy, and I was literally swarmed by... More

One of the best beaches I've ever visited. Sea is so warm, clear and clean. Fish are in abundance. BBQs are available - both wood and gas and it's a beautiful place to spend an evening having dinner. Must do.

Apart from the 'stinkers' ...silver drummers that crowd around you and somewhat eerily try and bite your fingers when you snorkel - a bit like a pescatorial Hitchcock movie- this place is fabulous, almost impossible elsewhere to have a similar experience, walk off a beautiful beach and snorkel over a beautiful reef, no stingers crocs or sharks (well there are...
