Black Head Beach

Located midway between Taree and Forster is the coastal area of Hallidays Point, taking in Black Head Beach.

Black Head Beach is a multi-award winning beach under the Keep Australia Beautiful Program. It is patrolled during summer and regarded as one of the best swimming beaches in the Manning Valley. It features shady Norfolk Island Pines, an ocean pool, excellent fishing opportunities, picnic areas, and barbecues.

Black Head has a supermarket, cafés, bowling club, and surf lifesaving club. The Black Head Markets are held in Wylie Breckenridge Park on the first Sunday of the month, from September to May.

The Black Head Surf Lifesaving Club overlooks the beach, and is available to hire for functions.

Meander along the rainforest walk which encompasses striking coastal landforms and rare tracts of littoral rainforest, a must for nature lovers and keen photographers.
