Leave the city beaches to the crowds while you spend the day at Lobster beach with barely a soul in sight within Bouddi National Park.
Lobster Beach is a sheltered beach just a short walk from the carpark. The area is perfect to pop by if you’re sailing or boating around at Brisbane Water National Park, just across from Bouddi. Marvel at the beautiful angophoras, stringy barks and banksias along the way, before arriving at this pretty beach fringed by natural bushland.
Enjoy a refreshing swim or wander along this sandy beach. Find a spot to throw in a fishing line and take in the serenity. Keep your eyes out for dolphins or sea eagles swooping for fish at Lobster Beach and don’t forget to pack your snorkelling gear. You're sure to find just as many natural wonders to admire beneath its sparkling waters as on land. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go birdwatching.
