  • We walked to Garie Head and enjoyed the view both to the north and south. The beach was closed due to huge swells so we could not swim on the day we visited.  more »
  • We were just driving through the park and decided to come down to this beach for a walk. A stunning beach, not many people and sea so inviting. Not much in the way of facilities so depends what you ar...  more »
  • My partner and I love coming to this beach. It is our favourite. It is usually quiet compared to other spots and not too busy so there's not any fuss finding parking or finding a good spot if you come a bit earlier (before noon). We love to have privacy and when we come here we are always able to find a spot that's far from everyone else and it's fantastic. I don't swim but my partner always enjoys swimming here. Waves look like they get pretty high to me, but he says it's no big deal... It's a beautiful place and lovely to walk around, too. It's got roomy toilet/changing areas for men and women and showers outside to wash off any sand. Parking is affordable, at $12 last time we went, though they did put it up... With an annual pass you can save if you visit often. Overall, excellent and highly recommended.
  • There is a $12 entry fee per car to enter Garie Beach. Parking spots are limited so ensure you come here early on a nice sunny day as it will definitely fill up before noon. There are only 3 picnic tables here so make sure to bring a picnic blanket. There is no shade here so make sure to bring an umbrella and sunscreen. Also please be careful with children because the waves can get pretty high and there are people surfboarding and fishing here
