Wallabi Beach is a popular surfing and swimming spot and a great place to spot interesting marine life, including bottle-nosed dolphins, and humpback and byrdes whales are often spotting during their migrating months of August through November. Birdwatching is particularly enjoyable here, and you're bound to see osprey, white-belled sea eagles, and brehminy kites. You may even see the animal this beach was named after.

Spring and summer are a great time of year for angling, so be sure to stock on fishing supplies in Taree, before spending a superb day fishing on the water at Wallabi Beach. Take a walk along Headland walking track to enjoy the view of Saltwater Beach and Pacific Ocean or stop for a picnic at Saltwater picnic area.
