Merewether Beach

Merewether Beach, home of four times World Surfing Champion, Mark Richards and Malibu Surfboard Riding Champion, Martin McMillan. No doubt this is part of the reason that Merewether Beaches National Surfing Reserve was declared in March 2009. The reserve stretches from Dixon Park in the north to Burwood Beach in the south.

There is competitive surfboard riding conditions for experienced surfers. Plus Council Lifeguard Services provided Monday to Saturday during swimming season and volunteer members of Merewether Surf Lifesaving Club provides beach patrols on Sundays during the swimming season.

There are change room facilities and a cafe/kiosk available all year round. And the two minute stroll between Merewether Beach and Merewether Ocean Baths features the historic Ladies Rock Pool and the heritage listed Surf House.
