About
Pebbly Beach is a beautiful sand beach famous for its swimming kangaroos. The local kangaroos often come down to the water for a dip on a hot summer afternoon, and if not will be lazing about on the dunes behind the beach. It is one of the only beaches in Murramarang National Park that is accessible by car.

Don't Feed the Roos!
Feb 2021
Have heard over the years about the friendly Roos at Pebbly Beach and on our way to points south decided to drop in (or hop in) for a quick look. On a fairly average day with heavy surf action a swim wasn't on the cards but found it to be a pleasant little beach with sheltered areas at either end. If you are to spend the $8 NP fee you may as well make a day of it with plenty of picnic space and free roaming locals. Tried to explain to a tourist NOT to feed the roos but he soon found out when the Roo wanted more and gave him a few smacks! He quickly moved on & missed his selfie shot! Lots of Lyre Birds also on display and a nice spot to visit.

Good hiking experience but no kangaroo
Jan 2021 • Couples
The beach is average, it’s not worth the effort if you come here for beach itself. You can clearly see that this area was really affected by the bushfire at 2019. You can see the burnt trees in the mountain walk, you can see the new branches is growing on those burnt trees which is exciting. But if you come here for gazing kangaroos. There were none left after the bushfire unfortunately. At least I didn’t spot one.

Beautiful beach
Dec 2020
This is a very pretty beach. The road to access it is a bit hairy, with very narrow parts and steep declines. It was worth going there, as it was pristine and very quiet.

A wonderful encounter
Dec 2020 • Couples
It is easily accessible from Princes Highway. You don’t need to prepare coins for the car park as the machine accepts cards!
We visited there at 9:30am. It was pretty cloudy and cool. We only saw two kangaroos (a mother and her Joey) near the beach, but also saw a family of Wood Duck (parents and three chicks) and Superb Lyrebirds (a mother and a juvenile) , the latter of which even made mimicking calls!
We walked to Clear Point along the track. Cicadas made sounds so loudly!

Birds, kangaroos, and beautiful beach
Nov 2019
Showed up and there was a parking meter that was $8 for a day parking pass I think. We found some birds immediately to watch, then on the way down to the beach, we saw a bunch of kangaroos (which is cool to us coming from the States). The beach was far from crowded and absolutely gorgeous and sandy.

Great beach!
Dec 2019 • Family
We were able to see many kangaroos around the beach. They are relatively friendly and you can get quite close. The beach itself is great and you can find hermit crabs scuttling about. It's very clean and picturesque. Also the birds flying around are beautiful to see. I definitely would make this one of my stops!

Didn't see the 'surfing kangaroos' but loved the beach
Nov 2019
We were unlucky in that we were not able to see any kangaroos when we visited early in the morning, but we sure enjoyed the water. There is a section near the rocks where the water is relatively still - my toddler most certainly enjoyed that area.

Beautiful beach

Loved the roos and the mechanical little left hand beach break! Stayed at the resort on the beach. Beach pretty much deserted while we were here

Lovely getaway
Mar 2019
Easily accessible and the facilities make for a pretty easy-going camping trip.
Even so, the feeling of getting away and living among nature for a few days remains undiminished.

A beautiful spot, and one which I can't wait to revisit. Just be ready to do battle with an army of possums.

Nothing but awsome! Loads of wildlife, perfect beach......
Mar 2019 • Solo
This place exeeded all expectations....Spacious car park (don´t forget to bring coins for park entrance fees), picnic area with BBQ, truly wonderful beach with forrest and bushland reaching almost to shore. But the main attraction here is (of course ...:)) the free roaming kangaroos. You will meet them either on the grass area around the BBQ or down at the beach (on the grass areas as well). During the day they are quite lazy, mostly resting in the shades of the trees and bushes, you can see them more active in the morning or around dusk. They are (very) tame, and you can get really close, if you behave calm and quiet. Besides the roos there is plenty of other wildlife to see (of course no guarantees): plenty of birdlife (Lorikeets, King Parrots, Kookaburras, Lyrebirds, Sooty Oystercatcher etc.etc. just to name a few). If you are lucky you can encounter Goannas, Echidnas, Pythons, Swamp Wallabies and others as well. The beach itself is amazing and invites for a swim. You have the choice either to stay and explore the beach (and relax) or do some nearby bushwalks. All in all this is really an amazing place, outstanding. I will definitely return as many times as possible when i am in NSW......
