1 Aspendale Beach
Aspendale 3195, VIC

Aspendale Beach forms the northern 3 km section of the 7.5 km long beach that stretches between the Patterson River mouth and the Mordialloc breakwater. The Nepean Highway and railway parallel the beach, with the Aspendale railway station being located 200 m east of the Aspendale Life Saving Club. The club was founded in 1927. There is limited parking at the club, as it is surrounded by beach-front houses and boat sheds, however a large car park is located 100 m to the south. The beach faces the south-west and extends from adjoining Edithvale up to the Mordialloc drain, with the Mordialloc Sailing Club located at the northern end. The beach is exposed to west through south-westerly winds and waves, which have built a sandy beach fronted by three shore parallel bars. The inner bar alternates between shallow, attached sections and deeper rip holes approximately every 150 m, while the second and outer bars become increasingly straight, with deeper troughs in between. At the Mordialloc drain, tidal flows through the drain widen and deepen the channel. In addition, more than 50 wooden groynes have been built across the beach, supposedly to prevent beach erosion.

Best in the patrolled area in front of the lifesaving club. Stay on the shallow section of the inner bar and avoid the deeper rip holes and troughs.
