1 Port Kembla Beach
Port Kembla 2505, NSW

Port Kembla Beach (NSW 370a, also called Perkins) occupies the northern half of the beach (Fig. 4.304). Bathing at Port Kembla dates back to the 1900's with the Port Kembla SLSC formed in 1910 and the first dressing sheds erected in 1912. Today there is a large Olympic pool on the northern rocks, with the surf club perched on the high foredune and a large car park next door, while to the south the dunes extending all the way to Windang. Persistent and often strong rips spaced every 200-300 m dominate this beach, with a permanent rip against the northern headland and up to 3-4 rips in the northern patrol area. The intervening bars alternate between being attached following periods of lower waves, and detaching with higher waves.

This is a long rip-dominated beach, so definitely stay between the flags at both ends. In the south also stay clear of the lake entrance, which has strong tidal flows.
