The southern side of Bustard Head looks south along 20 km of sandy beaches, broken by four inlets. Hard against the head and facing into the tidal shoals of the first inlet, Jenny Lind Creek, is beach 1460. The beach is just 100 m long, containing a strip of high tide sand at the base of cleared, 20 m high bluffs. It faces south-east across the dynamic inlet channel and shoals that extend up to 300 m off the beach.Jenny Lind Creek is named after the schooner “Jenny Lind” that was wrecked at the creek mouth in 1857, while attempting to find safety from a storm.

Swimming

These are four relatively isolated, little used beaches, which toward the north are rip-dominated and exposed to occasional higher waves. In addition there are deep channels and strong currents in the four creeks and inlets. Use caution if swimming, particularly if waves are breaking, toward low tide and in the creeks.

Surfing

Best beach breaks are along the more exposed northern beaches and over the tidal inlet shoals.

Fishing

Excellent fishing from the beach into the rip holes, and in the tidal creeks and inlets.

General

Bustard Bay's sandy shoreline remains much as it was when Cook sailed by and named the bay in 1770.
