Isolation is the key to relaxation
Seven Mile Beach is one of the best kept gems in New South Wales, offering seclusion, sand dunes, coastal sand forests, and situated within its own national park.

One of the views of the beach...


There is something about secluded beaches that really sets my heart racing and gets me engulfed in their ambiance. Maybe it is the peacefulness and serenity of having the entire beach to yourself, or with just a small handful of other human beings. Maybe it is the location; it could even be the inscrutability of the ocean.

Pure tranquility...


Whatever it is, I certainly recommend coming to Seven Mile Beach. It is so isolated that in 1933 Sir Charles Kingsford Smith set off on his first commercial flight from Australia to New Zealand right on Seven Mile Beach, which was used as a runway.

The path way to the beach...


Well, it certainly is a good thing that planes do not take-off here anymore, thus allowing you to experience the pure peaceful sounds of the ocean and nature all to yourself. However, there are times when this isolated beach is occupied by keen surfers and anglers in the summer months, as well as an abundance of wildlife, including the white belly eagle.

Enjoying the waves...


Seven Mile Beach comprises 898 hectares of coastal land in a narrow strip between villages of the Shoalhaven Heads and Gerroa regions. It is situated in the Seven Mile National Park, which happens to be the smallest national park in the state.

There are basic barbeque and picnic facilities to enjoy a feed in complete tranquillity. There is a wooden walkway to the beach and a viewing platform near the car park. There is also wheelchair access to the beach.

Another amazing view...


Be sure to check out the walking tracks through the forest and along the beach to make the experience even more enjoyable.
