Kingston is a southern suburb located 15 km south of the city, and the first main swimming beach southwest of Hobart. The beach is patrolled by Kingston Beach SLSC. The area surrounding the beach is highly developed with Kingston Beach shopping area and housing behind the beach, and residential development on the southern slopes overlooking the beach. Kingston Beach (T 466) commences at the river mouth and curves to the south for 1 km to the first rocks of Boronia Point. The beach faces east-southeast receiving waves travelling up the Derwent estuary and averaging about 0.5 m, which break across a 30-50 m wide low tide terrace. A seawall, narrow reserve, picnic area and playground back the beach. Towards the south there is a boat ramp across the beach and the Kingston Beach Sailing Club in the southern corner, with a hotel behind. The beach is backed by Osborne Esplanade, then four rows of houses, which completely occupy the low 250 m wide barrier system, with the river behind.

Swimming

This is a relatively safe beach with usually low wave to calm conditions. Stay clear of boating activity in the southern corner and watch for deep water off the beach.
