Dunbogan Beach - Diamond Head
New South Wales, Mid North Coast
Gentle waves roll in at the southern corner of this beautiful beach. Located within the Crowdy Bay National Park, a true Australian experience awaits at Diamond Head with great camping just metres from the sand complete with kangaroos lazing under the shade of the native trees. Enjoy..
The southern end is the safest spot for surfing with good sandbars that create forgiving rights and lefts, often with a fun right that breaks behind the reef during lower tides and a small left that breaks towards the corner during small swells and higher tides. A good spot for catching whitewater waves (low to mid tides) and really fun for catching green waves on higher tides. Rips are present, including in the southern corner at times.
Walk up the beach for bigger waves if the surf is tiny here, or if the waves are too big, head to the sheltered south corner of Crowdy Beach in the southern section of the national park for smaller and safer surfing conditions.

Dunbogan Beach is not patrolled, so drive south to Crowdy Head for a swim between the red and yellow flags, and smaller safer waves too.
Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.
Located in the car park beside the camp ground.
