Wooley beach (79) while the longest beaches in this section at 1.2 km has calcarenite reefs scattered along and just off the beach. During normal wave conditions these maintain four strong permanent rips. The most protected section is the far northern end, below the car park, when the reef is attached to the rocks and provides a partly enclosed lagoon. None the less this is a hazardous beach.

Swimming

Of these four beaches Post Office Rock is the calmest and safest, with the other three having both higher waves, rocks, reefs and rips.

Surfing

There are a few close-in reef breaks along Wooley Rocks beach.

Fishing

The rocks, rips and reef offer excellent fishing spots.

General

A very accessible and popular stretch of coast heavily utilised during the holiday periods.
