Cronulla Beach

Natural Attractions

Cronulla, derived from an Aboriginal word kurranulla meaning ‘place of pink seashells’, is located on the Bate Bay coastline in Sydney’s south. It is the only Sydney beach that can be reached by train, meaning you can visit without the headache of finding a car park.

Cronulla Beach is the only beach patrolled all year round by Sutherland Shire Council’s professional lifeguards together with volunteer lifesavers from Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club.

The Cronulla Pavilion and Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club are two prominent buildings located close to the sand, along with a cafe and restaurant. Behind the beach is a large grassed area with plenty of shade and a playground.

The Cronulla Rock Pools are between Cronulla Beach and North Cronulla Beach.

For a top day out at the beach, Cronulla has all the right ingredients – fish and chips, ice-cream and gelato, cool surf shops for beach supplies and accommodation.

Cronulla Beach is wheelchair accessible, has disabled toilets and a free Beach Wheelchair and Mobi Mat service.
