Tura/Short Point Beach

Tura/Short Point Beach

- 28 Jan

1 Tura Beach
Tura Beach 2548, NSW

Tura-Short Point beach (NSW 668) curves to the southwest, then south for 3.5 km between Tura Head and Short Point. It is backed by a broad valley in the north, which has been developed since the 1980s as Tura Beach Estate with houses surrounding a central golf course and a well-vegetated foredune behind the beach. A road, car park and beach access is provided toward the southern end of the estate. The southern third of the beach is backed by Back Lagoon, which periodically flows out in the southern corner against Short Point. Short Point has a caravan park, a large car park behind the beach and an extensive grassy headland. The entire beach faces east and receives waves averaging 1.5 m, which maintain a single bar usually attached and cut by rips every 200-300 m. The strongest rips are toward the centre and north, and there are permanent rips against both headlands. Lifeguards patrol the southern corner during the Christmas school holidays.

The southern end of Short Point beach usually has slightly lower waves and is patrolled in summer. Be careful of the rip along Short Point and strong rips up the beach and on the two more isolated smaller beaches.
