Beach

Burrill Beach (NSW 477), which continues southwest for 1.4 km to the shifting mouth of Burrill Inlet, which connects to Burrill Lake. This beach is also backed by 10-20 m high dunes and a central caravan park with walk access to the beach. A single usually detached bar runs along both beaches, with rips every 300 m and against the headland. The rips are linked by an often deep trough, in addition to the inlet channel, shoals and current at the southern end (Fig. 4.356).

Swimming

Two potentially hazardous beaches owing to the persistent rips and trough. However both are popular with holiday makers in summer, so stay in shallow water, on the bar if attached, and avoid the rips and feeder currents; and in the south use extra caution near the inlet entrance.

Surfing

Beach breaks occur all the way down the beaches, with quality depending on conditions. Across the inlet is Dolphin Point and its a massive sandstone rock platform. It offers a small right over reefs off the lake mouth, and further round the point is a reef, which produces a good left in northeast to east swell.

Fishing

Both the inlet entrance and the usually rippy beaches are popular spots.
