Pebbly Beach or “kangaroo beach” in Murramarang National Park is well known for the friendly kangaroos that graze on the grassy areas above the beach, and sometimes even enter the water.
The beach itself is a nice surf beach, although there isn’t much shade. Parking is fairly limited and the carpark can get full in the summer holidays.
At the northern end of the beach is a rock platform, which is often frequented by people fishing.
Behind the beach are some picnica areas, a campground (bookings essential) and cabins.
Getting to Pebbly Beach
Pretty Beach is about 10min drive (8.2km) from the Princes Highway via the unsealed Mount Agony Road, north of Batemans Bay. It’s about a 3.5-4 hour drive south of Sydney.
Staying near Pebbly Beach
