To the south of Green Mound is 5 km of rock-dominated shore backed by steep bluffs rising to 50 m. Two beaches occupy the first kilometre (Fig. 4.89). The first is Oxleys Beach (NSW 162), an exposed 250 m long rock-strewn beach, located between Green Mound and a southern rocky section. It is exposed to waves averaging 1.5 m, which maintain three permanent rips against the two headlands and some central rocks. A small creek drains across the centre of the beach with its small gully crossed by a footbridge. The beach is backed by bluffs rising to the Port Macquarie sports ground and a clifftop park.

Swimming

Rips and rocks dominate both beaches.

Surfing

There are rideable waves if you don't mind all the rocks.

Fishing

Sand gutters are always present amongst the beach rocks, and off the headlands.
