Toowoon Bay (NSW 278) is a larger 700 m long version of its neighbour Blue Bay to which it is connected at the northern foreland. It is also semi-circular, faces east, and has rocky reefs forming the entrance to each side of the bay (Figs. 4.163 & 4.164). Waves are reduced by the reefs and the narrow entrance to average 1 m in the north, 0.5 m in the centre and even lower to the south end where the flags are usually located. The waves can produce a bar and one or two rips in the north and centre with a narrow, steep reflective beach to the south. Higher waves breaking over the northern reef and generate a large rip in the centre of the bay. Best access is from the southern end where there is a park, caravan park, boat ramp and the Toowoon Bay SLSC, formed in 1954.
