The southern Stockton end of the beach (NSW 239b) includes the 2 km long southern end which is backed by the Newcastle suburb of Stockton, with the Stockton SLSC, founded in 1908, located 1 km north of the Hunter River entrance wall (Fig. 4.140). The beach here is backed by a continuous seawall, a foreshore reserve and a caravan park, with the houses behind. Waves decrease to the south and average about 1 m at the surf club, where they maintain a low tide terrace, while rips increase up the beach.
