Lake Cathie Beach

Lake Cathie Beach

- 28 Jan

1 Lake Cathie
Lake Cathie 2445, NSW

South of Lake Cathie entrance the beach (NSW 173) continues due south-southwest for 1.9 km to the low Middle Rock Point, a collection of rocks that causes a slight protrusion in the sandy beach. Lake Cathie settlement follows the back of the beach providing continuous access. In addition there is a grassy park and picnic area on the south shore of the lake entrance, together with a beachfront caravan park and a car park behind Middle Rock Point, which also provides 4WD access to the next beach south. The beach receives waves averaging 1.6 m and with the fine beach sand maintain a well-developed double bar system. The inner bar is usually attached and cut by rips every 300-400 m, with a deep trough and outer bar further out. A permanent rip runs out against Middle Rock Point, and when the lake is open strong tidal currents sweep the entrance.
These are two attractive but potentially hazardous beaches owing to the frequent rips and deep trough. If swimming, stay close inshore on the attached inner bars and avoid the rips and currents. Be very careful when the lake entrance is open and around Middle Rocks.
