Killalea State Recreation Area

Killalea State Recreation Park is a spectacular tract of coastal land that has been dedicated as a public recreation reserve available for surfing, fishing, picnics, bushwalking and camping. The park also has bunk house accommodation for groups.

Killalea has two favourite surf beaches, Killalea Beach or 'The Farm' as the locals know it and Minnamurra Beach 'Mystics'. In 2009 Killalea State Park was named a National Surfing Reserve with the vision of saving this unique surf break for future generations.

The Farm is quite unique as it faces south east and and has a point break that has fairly consistent surf. Surfing lessons are available from here - contact the Shellharbour Visitors Centre for information.

The park has a camping facility with 50 unpowered sites available and bunkhouse accommodation for groups. The park also has a kiosk on site.
