Timber Beach, NSW

Lake Munmorah State Conservation Area, NSW, Australia

A hidden private beach is a dream during the middle of summer when tourists are swarming the regular swimming spots. I decided to ditch my local and head back north with two of my friends to explore Timber Beach in Lake Munmorah State Conservation Area. I had heard there were some secret sea caves that are a must to explore during low tide. We were only able to access two of the four sea caves that are accessible to the far right hand side of the beach. The second one was my favourite and sadly I only captured grainy photos on my GoPro 4 due to low lighting. It is times like these I wish I had underwater housing for my DSLR camera.

DIRECTIONS: Follow Wilfred Barret Drive (from the Central Coast) towards Budgewoi. At the roundabout near Toukley take the second exit onto Budgewoi Road. At the next roundabout, take the second exit onto Ourringo Street. At the second roundabout take the second exit onto Elizabeth Bay Drive. Follow the road and turn right at the roundabout onto Birdie Beach Drive. Turn left at Blue Wren Drive and than right onto Campbell Drive. Park your car at the end of the road and to your right there is a path that heads down to the beach for about 500m. Please be mindful it is steep in some areas so wear appropriate footwear.

  2. May I ask, one of the caves you visited on Timber Beach, did it have rock columns floor to ceiling ?? I have seen photos online but thought these were in the Ghosties Beach seacave. I now believe them to be on Timber Beach. Also were the petrified wood boulders obvious ? Thanking you. Jane
