Caught a few herring and whiting recently. Lots of 4wds on the beach, was a bit windy and weedy this visit. Have caught Skippy and shark and salmon and silver bream here before. Nice outlook

One of the best beaches down here. Loads to do, great 4x4 tracks, sand dunes, snorkelling, fishing, camping. Explore the place properly! Take all the roads and see where they go. It's always different at different times of the year too.

Best beach in Albany IMO. Great views and crystal clear water. Dogs are welcome and it's a great place for a picnic and a swim.

Muttonbird Beach is a great place to relax. It has some protection from the southerly winds and a sheltered area to go swimming which is very peasant not to have to bigger waves crashing in on you. It`s a lovely walk or jog if you...More
