Follow Durras Road from the Princes Highway past the Durras Lake turnoff, over Durras Creek and Cookies Beach can be seen from the headland.Actually, the southern headland, with its small park, is a good place to stop and get your bearings and admire the view.

Cookies Beach

Cookies Beach, and in fact all of Durras, retains a unique  Australian natural bush setting due to the wide bushland corridor that separates the beach from the village.

The village at South Durras also has a unique Australian holiday feel, no doubt due in part to the humble fibro cottages still preserved there.

The beach is very Australian too, right down to the basking kangaroos usually found in the small park and barbecue area at the southern end.

There are some basic amenities found in the park, including toilets, but note that there is no fresh water available, the bore water must be boiled before use. There is however, a General Store in the village that can supply most of your holiday needs.

The beach, protected from southerlies by Mill Point and Wasp Island, is only about 500 metres long yet is reasonably wide so there is plenty of room to spread out for a day at the beach.

The southern end of the beach, near the Murramarang Resort, has a concrete boat ramp that is reached via a circular route through the village along Banyandah Street, just follow the signs to the resort and turn left into the large carpark just before reaching the resort entrance.
