Preservation Bay 7316, TAS

Preservation Bay (T 1103) is a 700 m long north-facing beach that curves round between low rocky bluffs. The beach is backed by a low grassy foredune, the old railway line and old highway, with a row of houses on the southern side. There is good access to the beach from the large car park next to the Penguin Surf Life Saving Club located behind the rocky shore at the eastern end (Fig. 4.240). All motorists travelling the old highway get a good view of the beach and club house. Waves average 0.5-1 m, and with the tides produce a narrow high tide beach and 150 m wide moderately sloping low tide beach, consisting of a continuous low tide bar (Fig. 4.241). Rips do however occur during higher waves at low tide, with a strong rip running out against the eastern clubhouse rocks during northwest wave conditions. A small creek drains across the central part of the beach.

Picnic Point and Buttons beaches are moderately safe under normal low wave conditions, apart from near the exposed and submerged rocks. During higher waves rips can also form in the low tide surf zone and around the rocks. The safest swimming is in the patrolled area in front of the surf club, otherwise at mid to high tide away from the rocks.
