Turners Beach (NSW 31) is wedged between the southern Clarence River entrance wall and Clarence Head. Like Lighthouse Beach at the mouth of the Richmond it is a new beach formed since the construction of the entrance walls in 1903. The beach is 375 m in length, backed by the training wall then a grassed area with parking and a toilet block in the southern corner. Waves reaching the beach are slightly lowered by Clarence Head and Yamba Point, resulting in moderate waves, which form a wide low attached bar (Fig. 4.29). A permanent rips runs out against the southern rocks, while a stronger rips flows out against the training wall.

Swimming

The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer holidays, stay between the flags and clear the rocks and strong rips.

Surfing

Usually a small, beach break.

Fishing

You can park at Turners Beach to walk out on the South Wall or The Quarry, a wide rock platform on the south side of the beach, formed when the cliff was quarried to build the walls. Tailor, mulloway and luderick are caught off the wall.
