Brilliant breakwater

I love this beach for the breakwater. Great when the surf is rough. Nice beach all round with a great little cafe for takeaway food and drink.

Relaxing walk

Didn't have a chance to go swimming - but definitely a good place to stroll and relax... the good weather added to the experience.

The Kangaroo that lives inside Nobbys
Jan 2021
The Kangaroo That Lives Inside Nobbys
A very long time ago, when there were still giant sized animals around (mega fauna), all the various animals within the area would separate into two groups – one group being the females and the other the males.
They all lived together very peacefully and happily.
One day a large male kangaroo attacked a female wallaby.
This was against the law.
He was banished from the kangaroo group forever.
After a long chase by the wallabies the kangaroo reached Muloobinba, the place of the sea ferns, now called Newcastle.
As he entered the sea, he thought about how lucky he was to be able to slip away from the wallabies that chased him.
The wallabies thought that he had drowned.
But the kangaroo had swum to Nobbys Island and entered the tall rocky outcrop, making sure that he was out of sight of everyone.
He is still there to this day, but he won't come out because he is never sure if it is safe for him from the angry wallabies.
Sometimes he gets upset and jumps around inside his prison. When his giant tail crashes against the earth, it makes the rocks fall and the ground tremble.
The Awabakal people believe this is what causes an earthquake.

Great beach
Nov 2020 • Solo
I have been attending Nobbys Beach for most of my life. The beach has gone through a number of changes over the years. The beach is wide and is sheltered from the southerly winds by a hill behind the surf club. A kiosk that serves good coffee and takeaways is also located in the same building as the surf club.
Free car parking is available at different car parks beside the beach. The breakwater connects Nobbys Island and the lighthouse to the mainland. There are several surfing locations at the beach. Namely, the wedge, the spit, the reef, the bank and the groper. All these surf spots get good waves when the conditions are right.The Beach is patrolled by Council Lifeguards and Surf Club Volunteers all year round.
Nobbys beach is close to the city and harbour. A good place go relax.

Beautiful coast
Sep 2020 • Couples
We walked along the coast line and took in the beautiful views. The beaches were sparkling clean and not too crowded. Will definitely take a dip next time we visit

Stunning views

A clean beach. Lots of space to spread out. Lifesavers on site. Somewhere to eat and enjoy the view. Watch the ships come in is amazing.

Another Fantastic Newcastle Beach.
Jul 2020 • Solo
Just around "the corner" from Newcastle Beach is Nobbys Beach. It is separated from the Harbour by the famous Nobbys Lighthouse and breakwall.
