Whether you’re enjoying a family picnic or pausing on driving trip for a quiet cuppa – Bateau Bay Beach picnic area is the ideal spot.
Positioned behind the north end of the beach, this picnic spot is very sheltered from the elements and large trees keep it nicely shaded, but there are also parts that catch the sun in winter.
Remember to bring your towel – one look at the beach and you’re sure to want a swim or to dip your toes in at least. It’s also a good spot for fishing or snorkelling and children will love to explore the rock pools. When you’ve been for a swim and polished off your lunch, why not take a short scenic walk along The Coast walking track and take in the view from Crackneck lookout?
