1 Miami Beach
Miami 4220, QLD
Miami Beach (1591I) occupies the southern 1 km of the beach, between North Nobby and South Nobby. Fifty metre high South Nobby protrudes 100 m into the surf, defining the end of the beach. The whole Miami Beach is fronted by a narrow beachfront reserve, with access tracks crossing the reserve from Marine Parade (Fig. 4.152). The Miami Beach Surf Life Saving Club is located at the southern end. It has a large car park and is backed by a caravan park. The club was founded in 1946, when it was known as the Ipswich Railway Surf Life Saving Club.
The eight surf lifesaving clubs and sixteen lifeguard towers attest to the potential hazards along this long beach. Rips are present whenever waves are breaking and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.
