Bulli Beach (NSW 366) is a relatively straight 950 m long, south-southeast facing beach that extends south from 5 m high Waniora Point to the even lower Flat Rock. The Bulli SLSC (founded 1916) is located on the southern side of the northern headland with a commanding view down the beach. Next to the surf club is a large park, then the small Whartons Creek crosses the beach south of the clubhouse, with a caravan park behind the centre and a park and playing fields behind the southern half. All are connected by a walking/bike path, with vehicle access in the south from Woonona. The entire beach is exposed to waves averaging 1.5 m, which usually maintain 4-6 rips, including permanent rips against the rocks at either end, and 2-4 shifting beach rips (Figs. 4.289 & 4.290). The intervening bars are usually attached to the beach, but are separated by a trough during and following periods of high waves; conditions that can also generate a second outer bar running the length of the beach. Rock pools are located on both rock platforms.
