On the north side of the slag heaps is the main 2.3 km long Wallaroo Bay beach (524), a sand beach fronted by ridged sand flats up to 400 m wide. A caravan park and beachfront houses back most of the beach. Most beach users park their cars right on the beach, and at low tide out onto the sand flats (Fig. 4.101). The beach terminates at a protruding 200 m wide rocks and reef, on the northern side of which is 700 m long north beach (525), essentially a continuation of the beach and sand flats, which is also backed by the beachfront settlement on North Beach.
The caravan park beach, main Wallaroo Bay and North beaches are the most accessible and most popular, with all requiring high tide for water over the sands flats. To provide all-tide swimming, there is a swimming enclosure out on the jetty.
Good fishing off the jetty and the Point Hughes rocks at high tide.
Wallaroo offers excellent beachfront camping/caravan facilities and a range of low energy, relatively safe beaches.Read less
