Summary: Emily Beach is a picturesque, secluded beach between South Durras and North Head in Murramarang National Park on the NSW south coast. A rock outcrop splits the beach into two.

Described as a ‘hidden gem’, Emily Miller Beach is a picturesque and sheltered beach in Murramarang National Park. Although all the beaches in this part of the national park may have rips, the low waves make this a great swimming spot. The short walk to the beach means there’s no crowds, even in summer.

Getting to Emily Miller Beach

The beach is just south of South Durras on the south coast (about 3.5 hours drive from Sydney). It’s accessed via one of two short (200m) walking tracks, off either the Old Coast Road or Wasp Head Road. You can also visit the beach as part of a longer Emilly Miller, Dark and Myrtle Beaches loop walk.
