Natural Attractions

Redhead Beach is at the northern end of a nine mile stretch of coastline, and is known for its stunning cliffs, rocky outcrops and shark tower. Redhead is patrolled in the warmer months, is home to the Redhead Surf Life Saving Club, and is popular with swimmers and surfers alike.

Conditions are perfect for surfing, swimming and fishing and you can view the natural landscape by walking on a boardwalk to the beach to see swans, ducks and wildlife.
