Killalea Beach was known as the Farm Beach by locals because it was once accessed through a farm. It’s a beautiful cove surrounded by natural bush and farmland. The gradual slope of the sand bed and the headlands that embrace it keep it fairly sheltered from winds and rips, which makes it perfect for swimming and surfing, including beginner surfing. The rocky shores at each end are dotted with rock pools filled with life. Just over the sand dunes are wetlands rich with birdlife.
The neighbouring beach to the south is Mystics, another great surf beach. It backs onto a forest and ends at the mouth of the beautiful Minnamurra River making it a pleasant walk. On calm days Mystics Beach and the Minnamurra River are great swimming spots.
What makes it special?
The campsite sits on the headland overlooking beautiful Killalea Beach. IT is also a short walk to Mystics Beach. This is my favourite stretch of coast between Wollongong and Kiama.
