Wombarra 2515, NSW
Scarborough Beach (NSW 356) begins amongst the rocks at the northern end and trends south-southwest for 560 m to the 100 m of rocks at the southern end, that separate it from Wombarra Beach (Fig. 4.280). Two creeks drain across the beach north and south of the Scarborough-Wombarra SLSC (founded 1914). It receives waves averaging 1.4 m and usually has 3-4 well developed rips, one at each end near the rocks and a 1-2 shifting beach rips, together with waves that surge up the steep beach face. The beach is backed by slopes rising to an oval behind the northern end, and houses to the south, with the Wombarra shops and community parallelling the main road.
Only Scarborough Beach is suitable for swimming when patrolled. All three are rip and in places rock-dominated, so use care, or use the Wombarra pool.
