Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Freshwater Beach is a great spot for surfing and body boarding with impressive, clean and regular waves. The beach is unique as it offers privacy from the rest of the bay with high rock walls on either side. Freshwater Beach held the first ever surfing demonstration in 1915 in Australia. The beach is one of the most famous spots to visit. Swimming is not for the light-hearted in this beach due to three continual rips. The sandy beach front offers great spots to enjoy the sun, sand and water.
