durras beachThe short drive into Durras Lake village from the Princes Highway meanders through towering spotted gum eucalypts with a carpet of burrawangs underneath. Take a left turn onto Durras Lake Road just before the creek to head towards the village and the beach.

Durras Beach

Durras Beach, known also as Durras Lake Beach, is a wide, east-facing beach that joins Durras North Beach via a sandbar across the entrance to Durras Lake.

Durras Lake village is quietly tucked away behind a native parkland strip and the beach is hidden by low sand dunes. Well-equipped caravan parks are located at both ends of the beach offering all amenities, swimming pool, tennis court, showers and barbecues. The beach however, is not patrolled and has few amenities, so make sure you come prepared.

If you’ve come to surf then you’ll be very happy at Durras Beach. There are good surf breaks along the entire length of the beach and you may even be joined on the waves by the local pod of dolphins.

There are plenty of places to explore on foot too, the dune walk across to North Durras takes you past the caravan park through scrub to Durras Lake and Durras North Beach. Keep an eye out for nesting Hooded Plover birds in this area and note that dogs are not allowed.

The other interesting walk is around the headland at the southern end of the beach. Erosion has produced some spectacular patterns in the sandstone ledge and there are a multitude of unusual rockpools and crevices to explore.
