Please note
  • Richmond Beach is not patrolled and can sometimes have strong rips and currents. These beach safety tips will help you and your family stay safe in the water.
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go bird watching or whale watching

Wander along a short and easy walking track and within a few steps you’ll arrive at the secluded beauty of Richmond Beach. Ideal for families, it provides protection from most onshore winds and makes for a peaceful day at the beach.

Surrounded by forest, there are plenty of shady spots to throw down a picnic rug and enjoy a picnic in a stunning natural setting. Bring your fishing gear and try your luck fishing from the beach, or go swimming and snorkelling in the sparkling blue waters.

With more than 90 species of birdlife in Murramarang, this is also a great spot for birdwatching. Wander along the foreshore and see how many species you can see. Catch a glimpse of gannets flying over the waters or watch the sooty oystercatchers fossicking along the shoreline.
