Who wouldn’t want to spend part of their holiday paddling, kayaking or just frolicking in this beautiful estuary at the southern end of Moonee Beach? Surrounded by sand dunes and littoral rainforest, with perfect waves crashing in the distance, you can easily spend the whole day relaxing and enjoying this pristine nature reserve. Moonee Beach Nature Reserve is perfect for picnics, leisurely walks, fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving, paddling experiences, and whale watching opportunities.
The estuary is part of Solitary Islands Marine Park, which was the first marine park to be created in NSW. Tranquil and tree-lined, the meandering creek offers an exciting way to explore the southern section of the park. Pack a picnic lunch and fishing rods for catching bream and flathead. Bring along your binoculars for bird watching – the wildlife is abundant. The kids can swim, build sand castles, wade through the shallows, or, if the tide is right, ride a lilo on the gentle current.
