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.
A small rock outcrop in the middle of the beach is sometimes used for fishing.
The southern section of the Emily Miller Beach can be reached at low tide by walking over the central rock outcrop.
The southern section of Emily Miller Beach is just as nice as the northern part; there’s a deep overhang or cave in the rock outcrop which splits the beach in half.
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.
