The beautiful Toowoon Bay Beach is popular for swimming, surfing, snorkelling and fishing, with rocky reefs near both ends. It’s a patrolled beach that curves along the coast for about 700m. Pretty Blue Bay Beach is immediately north and enchanting Little Bay Beach sits to the south, connected by a point where gentle waves roll onto the soft sandy shoreline.

Explore the bicycle path along the foreshore of Tuggerah Lake, a shallow waterway popular for water sports such as sailing, waterskiing, fishing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. The estuary is also an important habitat for birds, including sharp-tailed sandpipers, black swans and pelicans.

Swadling Park is a charming picnic spot with barbecue facilities and a playground, located at the rear of Toowoon Bay Beach. Another pretty picnic spot is Long Jetty Foreshore Reserve, home to the iconic Long Jetty. You’ll also find picnic spots along the 7.6km Coast to Lake Scenic Walk, as well as ocean baths, a lookout, cafés and galleries.
