Tabourie Beach (NSW 479) begins in lee of Crampton Island where its faces south, then curves round for 1.7 km facing east-southeast, and finally north in lee of a rock reef called Stokes Island. The central section of the beach is usually cut by 6-8 rips, with the bar alternating between being attached and detached (Fig. 4.357). Near the island is a close-in reef, called Dum-Dums, which in low to moderate swell can produce some good lefts and rights. These reefs also reduce the waves at the beach. It can be accessed via a car park and picnic area at its northern end and in the centre.
