About Redhead Beach
Eighty-metre high Redhead Point marks the southern end of Newcastle's rocky shoreline, Redhead Beach and begins Nine Mile Beach (NSW 250). The first 3 km are typically straight, but as it approaches Blacksmith Bay you can see that there has been some natural erosion which makes this part look more like a freestyle ski slope than anything else. It narrows down further towards rocks below sea level before finally coming to an end against Lake Macquarie’s northern entrance wall for Jewell Swamp. The 380m long promontory was once covered in vines; however, since European settlement, all trees have been removed except one small region near its peak.
The only vehicle access to this beautiful beach is through two gates at either end. The northernmost Redhead end has an interesting history with swimming and lifesaving, while south of Blacksmiths Beach there’s been a subdivision that opened it up for public use back in 1911 when they were known as ‘Durham Boys'. Today You'll find Awabakal Nature Reserve on one side along Australia's longest boardwalk which runs parallel to the coastlines here between beaches like these ones- you can go walking or cycling any time so long as it is not too hot out.
The Redhead surf club is located on an outcrop of rock 100 m south of the little town called Redheads. The stretch between this location and point has a strong, permanent rip against it that usually occurs nearshore with attached bars up to 200 meters long where swimmers can enjoy their day in water safer than most other places around here.
What To Do At Redhead Beach
Waves at Redhead can be unpredictable, but with a little knowledge of how they work, you'll have no problem staying safe. Stay close to the surf club and swim between those flags! Be very careful if swimming near rocks or down by sea level - it rips dominated so stay in front of it rather than behind as there is a sewer outlet across this part bay (not sure what kind). Blacksmith usually has lower waves which make for safer waters; however even though less dangerous overall still consider yourself warned about potential dangers nearby before getting into anybody else’s way.
Redhead is the perfect surfing spot for those looking to get a ride on some big waves. The best time of year at Redheads is from June through September when protected swells come in from either east or southeast direction and offer nice beach breaks with plenty of shelter against northeast winds that often blow during this period too! Bigger seas can be ridden by you as well - just head down past BlackSmith Point into deep water where Filmows offer more challenging setups but still lots of fun.
Near the long, pristine beach of Little Redhead Bay is where you can find some great fishing. Most fishermen will head out to this area with their rods and reel because there's plenty of room for error as well as bait or lure coverage in case your catch isn't what they had hoped. A few miles down from here on Groyne Road towards Swansea city centre lies another spot worth checking if just for its history alone - The Groyne.
