About Ettalong Beach
It's a renowned fishing beach, with excellent boating facilities. Ferries and charter vessels run regular tours around the majestic Brisbane Water National Park, providing scenic, fishing and whale-watching experiences.
There are so many family-friendly things to do within close reach. Visit Ocean Beach Umina for more than 2 km of sandy beaches and an inland waterway that's great for younger children to splash around in.
For a unique experience, don't miss the Ettalong Seaside Village Market every weekend. Stroll through the stalls and explore the food, clothes and vintage goods on offer.
If it's bush scenery you're after, visit Brisbane Water National Park for bushwalking, birdwatching, or Aboriginal art. Also close by is the Bouddi National Park, offering pristine beaches and stunning coastal cliff views. Take a picnic, enjoy a barbecue, or walk to a sandy beach for a lazy afternoon.

Enjoy NSW beaches like a local by following these simple beach safety tips.
Always swim between the red and yellow flags – surf lifesavers have identified this area as the safest spot to swim in the water. It’s also a good idea to always swim with a friend.
Make sure you ready any safety signs at the beach and you are always welcome to ask lifeguards for more safety advice. If you find yourself needing help in the water, stay calm and attract attention.
