1 Peregian Beach
Peregian Beach 4573, QLD
Peregian Beach (1539D) is 8 km south of Sunshine and parallels the beach for 4 km, down to the small Stumer Creek mouth. The Peregian Surf Life Saving Club is located in a large beachfront reserve opposite the main shopping area (Fig. 4.110). The beach has good parking, access and facilities. The club was established in 1962 when the area was first developed, and patrols a potentially hazardous rip dominated double-bar surf zone.
Swimming anywhere along the beach is relatively hazardous owing to the persistent strong rips, the deep longshore trough and larger rips further offshore. You should only swim at the four patrolled beaches. Stay between the flags and well clear of the rips.
