Around-Oz: Living the Dream!

Shark Beach - North Coast - New South Wales
A Tiny Beach - Next to a Breakwater
Fantastic Views up the Coast

What a wonderful spot for a smoko break! It might only be 300 metres wide but it is a gently sloping beach making it ideal for the over 50's provided it is calm. It was a 40 degree day on our visit in November 2004 yet we had to shut some windows as it was quiet chilly!


You can walk right out to the end of the breakwater - also ride your bike if you wish. The views up the coast are absolutely stunning. The bikeway goes right back into town and follows the lovely river - a very enjoyable ride.


CDMA and GSM work fine, good TV reception for the midday soaps for your little lady, the water tastes fine and parking is reasonably level if you have a gas fridge. You can fill up with water but you will need a long hose. The easiest tap is behind the sheltered tables. The toilets are hopeless if you have a wheel chair. There isn't even a path. However there is a good outside shower after that swim. Our only moan is only one garbage bin. This is a bit daft for such a large area.


This truly is a lovely spot and well worth the 10 kms detour off the Pacific Highway. If you have a long bus you wont be able to park here unless three normal parks on the left side are all vacant. There is a nasty bend at the entrance road that could also give grief to long vehicles. Our day spent here was most enjoyable.

Absolutely recommended
