Described as one of “Murramarang’s hidden treasures”. Richmond Beach is one of the easiest beaches to get to in Murramarang National Park on the NSW south coast. Despite the very short walk to the beach, it’s never busy even in summer. The waves are a little higher here than other Murramarang beaches, so swimming due to strong rips is not advised if there is a heavy swell. There is a flat, grassy area above the beach, but not much shade.
A creek flows into the beach at the northern end, near the carpark.
Getting to Richmond Beach
The beach is south of South Durras on the NSW south coast (about four hour’s drive from Sydney), with an unsealed access road off the Old Coast Road (suitable for 2WD vehicles but can get a bit rough near the end). The very short walking track (50m) goes to the northern end of the beach.
