Quarry Beach is named after a disused gravel quarry that now serves as a small car park toward the northern end of the beach. The sandy beach is 1 100 m in length and is bordered by prominent 20 to 30 m high jagged headlands, formed of steeply dipping metamorphic rocks. These rocks also outcrop along the beach and in the surf. Waves averaging just over 1 m arrive at the beach, to produce, along with scour holes next to the larger rocks, a continuously attached bar, that is usually cut by rips every 250 m.

Swimming

Usually best in front of the car park where it is relatively clear of rocks. Waves decrease slightly to the south, but the rocks increase. Stay clear of the rocks; and rips, when present.

Surfing

Beach breaks, which are best on a low to moderate swell following high seas.

Fishing

A popular spot owing to the excellent access and range of beach, rocks, reef and headland fishing available.

General

A relatively popular beach for bathing and fishing.
