Silver Beach

Home > Sydney > Beaches
Published February 11th 2010
Looking for some southside sea, sun and surf? Then look no further than Kurnell's Silver Beach.

Featuring the skyscrapers of the CBD as a backdrop, this long stretch of sand is noted for its 14 rock walls, which jut out perpendicularly at regular intervals as this photo shows.

People come to Silver to swim, sunbake, fish, snorkel and jet-ski. They also come to take lazy strolls along the beach. You're welcome to bring the dog, although Fido can only be taken off the leash in a specific area. But feel free to leave the food at home, as the Kurnell Village Store is located directly opposite.

If you want to combine your seaside outing with a spot of history, that's also possible. Silver Beach is not far from the Kurnell Peninsula, where Captain Cook stepped ashore in 1770. You can learn all about it in the Visitors' Centre, or follow in his footsteps on one of the interpretive walks.

The easiest way to reach Silver Beach is by car. To get there by public transport, you'll have to take the train to Cronulla, and then hop on a bus.
