I’m lucky to live near one of the beast beaches around in NSW, but then again, I’m biased!
Redhead Beach takes its name from the bluff which is bright red when the sun shines on it. Close to it is a shark tower which was built around 1929 from timber from an old coal mine. It’s believed to be the last remaining shark tower of its kind in Australia before the introduction of shark nets.

The beach extends to nine miles of coastline and the Redhead Bluff is at its northern end with the Redhead Surf Life Saving Club housed there. It is a patrolled beach at this point during the warmer months.

There’s room for us all here: swimmers, walkers, surfers, dogs and 4WD. With so much to do, it’s the perfect location – mostly for locals, so don’t tell anybody, will you?
If I can keep a secret, so can you! 😊
