Southern Beaches Holiday House

Park Beach and  Carlton Beach, Dodges Ferry

Just a 5 min walk from Southern Beaches Holiday House, Park Beach is a great all rounder.  Whether you like to surf, play in the sand or just take a long walk.  The entire beach is about 4km long and you can walk down to the Eastern end of the beach which is known as Carlton Beach.  This end of the beach the dog exercise are finishes and it becomes an important shorebird nesting area as you walk around to the mouth of the Carlton River. There is also a surf club here which operates lifeguards during peak times over summer.
