South of Seaspray the beach continues to change. The sand remains fine all the way to Reeves Beach. This results in a double bar system, with a usually attached inner bar cut by rips every 250 m, a trough, then the outer bar. In addition, the beach is eroding along parts of this section, which usually results in a scarped dune at the back of the beach.
The first beach access south of Seaspray is McGaurans Beach. The McGaurans Beach Road runs straight out to the beach, where there is a small car park but no facilities. Four kilometres to the south is Jack Smith Lake Beach; named after the backing lake. Access to this beach is via a 2 km track off the Seaspray Road. The track can be flooded during wet weather.
Beach Length: 8km
