Kianga Beach (NSW 594) begins 200 m south of Duesburys and trends to the south for 700 m to the usually blocked mouth of 15 ha Kianga Lake, which flows out against the a low boundary rocky point (Fig. 4.395). It is backed by a vegetated foredune in the north, which narrows to the south, where the drive runs along the rear of the beach and across the lake entrance. Waves average 1.5 m reducing to 0.5 m in lee of the southern rocks. These maintain a strong rip against the northern rocks; usually one central rips and one in lee of the southern rocks. Access is provided from a small car park on the drive just behind the centre of the beach, and on the southern headland where a road runs out to the point and is surrounded by a grassy park.
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
