Lamberts Beach

- 28 Jan

1 Lamberts Beach
Slade Point 4740, QLD

Lamberts Beach (1114) is the northern of Mackay’s two main surfing beaches. It is located just 1 km south of Slade Point, with a lookout on the southern part of the point providing an excellent view of the beach. The Slade Point Road runs right behind the beach. The beach is 500 m long, faces due east and is bordered by a prominent, 40 m high headland and lookout at the northern end, and a lower rocky platform and reef at the southern end. A 100 m wide grassy park, with amenities, backs the beach, with casuarina trees also fringing the back of the beach. The beach is composed of coarse sand and some gravel, which produces a steep high tide beach, while at low tide it is fronted by a 50 m wide bar that is usually cut by three rip currents and channels (Fig. 4.61). Waves average 0.5 to 1 m, making it one of the more exposed and higher energy beaches in the area (Fig. 4.62). Lifeguards patrol the beach during the Christmas and Easter holidays.

Slade Point beach is only suitable at high tide in low wave conditions. Lamberts is a popular surfing beach as well as being patrolled during the Christmas and Easter holiday period. However swimmers should watch out for the rips toward low tide. North Harbour is less popular owing to the more difficult access and care should be taken as rips do occur along the beach.
