Goftons Beach - TAS

- 28 Jan

1 Goftons Beach
Bridport 7262, TAS

Eastmans Beach (T 1234) is located 200 m to the south and is a 100 m long pocket of sand bordered by low rocky points, with sand linking around the southern point to Goftons Beach. A grassy park, footpath, then the trees of the reserve back the beach, with a few boulders scattered across the low tide bar at the southern end. Goftons Beach (T 1235) continues immediately to the south as a 400 m long sandy beach that has prograded up to 100 m seaward at its eastern end against the training wall for the Brid River. The prograded beach is backed by a low grassy foredune with the trees in the reserve marking the original shoreline. The town centre of Bridport lies 200 m south of the beach. The low tide bar widens to 300 m wide river-mouth shoals towards the river mouth, with extensive sand flats exposed at low tide (Fig. 4.280).

The eight Bridport bay beaches are all usually calm with a low hazard rating. Beware however of the many boulders along the beaches and the tidal channel and currents at the river mouth. Adams Beach offers the only surf and is more hazardous with rips occurring when waves exceed 0.5-1 m, particularly at low tide.
