Bremer Beach (WA 305) is the main bay beach. It is a curving 6.3 km long south-southeast-facing beach, bordered by a protruding 65 m headland in the east and the mouth of Wellstead Inlet and a 20 m high headland in the east (Fig. 4.78). The headlands protect both ends of the beach where lower waves and a low tide terrace prevail, and where access tracks reach the beach. These protected areas are known as James and John cove respectively. The central few kilometers receive higher waves averaging 1.5 m which maintain a 100 m wide rip dominated surf zone, with several rips located along this section. The beach is backed by a 1000 ha transgressive dune field, with an area of inner active dunes and a vegetated deflation surfaces. The dunes have extended up to 3.5 km inland, transgressing over low bedrock and reaching heights of 40 m. The Hunter River is partly blocked by the dunes and forms an elongate lagoon. It then winds across the deflated surface to break out in the centre of the beach.
