The small Flynns Point separates the isolated Rocky beach and popular Flynns Beach. Flynns Beach (NSW 164) is the site of Port Macquarie SLSC (Fig. 4.90). It was chosen for the surf club in 1929 because it has good vehicle access with a beachfront park and car parking. It also has less rock and more sand in its 500 m length and it receives slight protection from Nobby Head resulting in an east-northeast orientation. Waves average 1.4 m and maintain two permanent rips against the northern headland and southern rocks, with a third rip crossing the central bar during and following higher waves (Fig. 4.88). Seaward of the bar is a trough and outer bar also cut by rips at either end. As a forerunner to the present surf club, a Surf Bathing Club was formed at Port Macquarie in 1910 by members of the 48th Foot Regiment, then stationed at the Port. In the 1950s Port Macquarie surf club took out a Miners Right on Flynns Beach, not to mine the beach for heavy mineral sands, but to stop others having the same idea.
