if ya got a 4wd then ya can drive north or south along the beach. if not park in the carpark and walk out onto the beach.
this place is nuts. like gettin dumped or ridin a huge dumper up onto the sand?, then this is ya place. ya gotta be nuts ta even go 4 a swim afta a storm, nice big dumpers. can sorta be ridden 4 about 5 metres when the howlin sea breeze is in. oh yeah watch out 4 the stingrays. the fishin is pretty good.
if you are thinkin about goin here i say good luck and i hope the sand isnt too hard.

Preston - My family have a holiday house in preston. I remember one easter on this one day, the waves where rolling in like scarbs or trigg beach (not that these waves r that good) and breaking quite a bit off shore, not like its usual beach breaking self. We have been down to preston every year for 20 odd years but have never seen it do it again. It was a very strange day.
