Brickyard Point beach (NSW 360) is located on north side of Brickyard (Long) Point. It is a protected relatively straight 160 m long northeast-facing beach that receives waves averaging 0.5 m. The beach is backed by a large park and picnic area, with a car park immediately behind the beach and a boat ramp for launching small boats at the north end of the beach. The beach itself is narrow, steep and reflective, with extensive rock platforms to either side and reefs offshore.

Swimming

These are three hazardous little used beaches owing to the dominant rocks and rips, while Brickyard also has boat traffic.

Surfing

The northern reef at Sharky, called Sharkies, can produce good lefts and rights under low to moderate swell. At Brickyard surfers park here to paddle out to the tip of the rock platform off the point where there is a steep right reef break called Headlands. It breaks best when the swell exceeds 1.5 m and is only for experienced surfers.

Fishing

All three offer good beach and rock gutters, together with the boat ramp at Brickyard
