Tomaree National Park
Box Beach is a surf spot located between Fingal Bay and Shoal Bay in Tomaree National Park. Use caution when swimming at this isolated and peaceful beach.
Framed by scenic conical headlands, sandy Box Beach is a popular surf spot for Nelson Bay locals. Be careful if you swim at this secluded spot. It’s unpatrolled and exposed to rips.
The nearby car park closes at 10pm each night.
The short walk to Wreck Beach offers a private alternative to the beaches of Port Stephens, with opportunities for picnicking and whale watching.
Wreck Beach is in Tomaree National Park at the end of Wreck Beach walk. It’s a peaceful little cove with beautiful sand, perfect for whale watching or just a barefoot stroll along the seashore.
