- 28 Jan

1 Smiths Beach
Yallingup 6282, WA

The beach faces west-northwest and has of three sections (WA 712-714) each separated by intertidal calcarenite reef. The main beach (WA 712) is 600 m long, faces northwest (Fig. 4.144). The 500 m long headland provides some protection at the southern end resulting in waves increasing from about 1 m in the southern corner to 1.5 m in the north, where they maintain 2-3 beach rips along the central-northern section of the beach. Gunyulgup Brook drains across the centre of the beach. It is backed by a moderately stable foredune south of the creek, then the resort development, while north of the creek are vegetated dunes climbing the backing 60 m high slopes. There is a left break off the point during higher waves and a variety of beach breaks over the reefs and bars.
South of the creek is the safer place to swim and is patrolled in summer, however strong waves and rips are still common, so use caution. North of the creek is increasingly hazardous owing to the reef, higher waves and stronger rips....
