Buttons Beach (T 1116) is a 2.7 km long north-facing beach, bordered by the 1 km long training wall of the River Leven in the west and the low rocks of The Fish Pond in the east. The entire beach is backed by a wide recreation reserve containing numerous facilities including a large caravan park, ovals, campground and picnic areas. The Ulverstone Surf Life Saving Club is located toward the centre of the beach (Fig. 4.245), just west of the small creek that drains across the beach and in front of the larger of the two reserve caravan parks. The beach consists of a narrow high tide beach, with a 150 m wide low gradient low tide terrace and extensive rock flats toward either end. The small Buttons Creek drains out across the centre of the beach.

Swimming

Picnic Point and Buttons beaches are moderately safe under normal low wave conditions, apart from near the exposed and submerged rocks. During higher waves rips can also form in the low tide surf zone and around the rocks. The safest swimming is in the patrolled area in front of the surf club, otherwise at mid to high tide away from the rocks.

Surfing

Waves are usually low at Ulverstone, however occasional swell can produce breaks over the rocks, with conditions depending on the state of the tide.
