Yabbara Beach (NSW 592) is located between Yabbara and Duesburys points. It faces east-southeast, with rocky platforms and points bordering each end, a small creek crossing against the northern rocks and a low foredune behind. It is readily accessible from the drive which runs on the west side of a low foredune and from the car park on the northern 15 m high Yabbara Point, which looks down the beach. Waves average 1.5 m, which maintain permanent rips against the rocks at each end and usually a shifting central rip.
These are six rock- and rip-dominated beaches, all with strong permanent boundary rips, usually flowing out against jagged rock platforms and reefs, together with shifting beach rips. Use care if swimming at any of these beaches.
All six beaches offer readily accessible beach breaks with conditions depending on wave, wind and bar conditions.
There is good access to all these beaches and their rips and rock platforms.
The 7 km of coast between the towns of Dalmeny and the mouth of Wagonga Inlet at Narooma contain eight beaches (N SW 591-597), each separated by generally low rocky headlands composed of 450 million-year-old, tilted metamorphic rocks. The main Dalmeny Drive runs right behind the beaches providing excellent access. This section of coast has grown substantially since the 1970s, with Dalmeny-Kianga having a population of over 1800.Read less
