Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Walk from the carpark 15 minutes along the beach to the rivermouth or if you have a 4X4 you could drive it although the sand gets pretty soft. Take the rip out, its easier than battling though the breaking waves
If the banks are good this place can really turn it on with fun little peaks all the way down the beach. Head to the rivermouth for the pick of the bunch
Worth a look if you're in the area

Good surf spot - Muttonbird is a good surf spot when the swell is big. 4*4 or walk around to the creek inlet to the break called floodgates, this is good if near the island is not so good. For the body boarders if there is a really large southerly swell check out the right of the island. Be carefull is a sloped rock and sharp, can get huge barrels. The break off the island is more inconsistent than the beach break as it needs good wind + swell.
