Home to the surfing kangaroos
Pebbly beach is known for being the home of the "Surfing Kangaroos" with an abundance of spectacular wildlife and countless activities to conquer. Pebbly beach is nestled in the Murramarang National Park in the South Coast of New South Wales.

Check out those amazing hues...


It sure is a place to visit that will no doubt astound you. Pebbly beach is one of the perfect escapes from the busy city life with wild kangaroos sunbathing next to you on the sands and grass of the beach, along with king parrots and other incredible native birds. Make sure you keep an eye out for the incredible sea eagles soaring high above in the skies.

If you are familiar with Pebbly Beach you may have heard the story about the 'Surfing Kangaroo' - where a kangaroo was forced to swim in the beach after getting chased by a dog. It is believed to be a myth created after a photograph was taken of a kangaroo in the low surf. If you are lucky enough maybe you can witness a kangaroo going in for a dip!

The crystal clear water entices you to go in for a dip or simply lay back and just relax watching the different hues of the beach. You can throw in a hook and try your luck at fishing or keep an eye out on the wildlife, including dolphins who like to come close to the shore.

During migration season you are able to spot whales on their journey as they happen to come close to shore as well!
