Natural Attractions

This popular swimming beach stretches nine kilometres and is protected by offshore sandbars. It is a very safe beach for children with lots of sandbars at low tide. Weekend patrols on weekends and public holidays during summer are run by the Rosebud and McCrae Life Saving Clubs. The foreshore reserve has shaded picnic areas, barbecues and the new beachside playground near the pier is without doubt, the best on the peninsula. Another small playground and barbeque can be found at Tom Salt Park.

Hungry or thirsty after a nice day on the beach? Not a problem as several coffee shops, cafes and take away outlets are right across the road.

The foreshore Bay trail for walkers and cyclists continues past Rosebud.

Facilities: Skateboard park, barbeque and toilets at Rotary park (opposite Boneo Road), pier.

Accessible beach matting is available next to the jetty daily between November and May. Please note matting will not always meet the waters edge, during low tides.

Leash-free dog beach is located 100 metres west and 200 metres east of car park opposite Murray Anderson Drive during daylight savings only 7:00pm-9:00am. Always refer to signs at beach entry points as changes to dog restrictions may be made at any time by local authorities.
