Minnamurra Beach

Minnamurra Beach also referred to as 'Mystics' is a favourite with the locals. Mystics Beach stretches from the rocky headland towards the volcanic outcrop known as Stack Island (aka Rangoon Island). This stretch of beach forms a sand spit, behind which is the estuary of Minnamurra River.

The natural setting features small areas of vegetation with a view out to stunning Stack island. Day visits are popular with people coming for the scenery, surfing, BBQ and picnics.

Mystics Beach forms part of the National Surfing Reserve at Killalea State Park and is a popular well known location for surfing. The swell from the south make good left breaking off the point over shallow sand a rock bottom, holding plenty of swell.
