Mullawarra ( got it's name from being situated between Arrawarra and Mullaway headlands)is often overlooked by surfers wanting to surf the better known breaks around it.
There are a wide range of breaks to choose from just on this beach alone. At the south end there is a nice R/H point on large sth swells. At the northern end there is a punchy left know as the Wedge that breaks in front of rocks. And also a nice beach break in the center of the beach which you can drive to if so inclined.
Mullawarra is a very well known beach among locals and can be surfed in most swells and wind directions. Show respect to the local guys in the water and enjoy yourself.
Early morning low incoming tide is best

Mullawarra magic - South end is a very mellow, mal-friendly spot, which is pretty rare these days. But be aware if you do plan on taking the mal out there, show some respect and don't screw it up for the rest of us. This is definately not a place for big headed wankers, no matter what your choice of ride - this is one of last truly beautiful and not over-crowded spots on the east coast so look after it!! and most importantly, leave the attitude back home on the Goldy or back on the Northern beaches - it aint welcome here.
