The water was unbelievably clean and we found it ideal for our 6 year old to splash around in. The pool is netted and pretty much wave less. Which is ideal for little ones NOT knocking them off their feet. There is also beach showers...More

What a beautiful little area, calm clear water, well netted so no nasty's, it has a nice beach to relax on while the kids enjoy the water.

This site is great as it doesn't usually have large waves so little kids can enjoy it. It is protected by a shark net and most adults can swim out and stand up in the water (depending on tides)

This little beach area at the breakwater entrance to the river is a fun area for the kids to play and the adults to enjoy the small beach.

Wonderful spot to swim clean, shallow and deep, good place for laps although can be dangerous on change of tide. If you are lucky you may see a pod of dolphins

If you want to go to the best cafe in Tuncurry then stop looking and go here. Food is great, coffee is great and service is with a smile

This is a great area. Has a nice, safe swimming spot and a lovely little walk along the breakwater looking over the bar out to sea. There are excellent views from the breakwater up to the northern beaches and a nice view to the south...More

You need to have your pet on a leash and it is not allowed into any eatery/food area unless it is an 'authorised/exempt animal' (ie 'guide dog'). Usual Council & State Govt laws/bylaws/regulations apply.
