Dalmeny- A Town of Many Beaches

Situated in the Southern Coast of New South Wales, at approximately 340 kilometres south of Sydney, Dalmeny is a small seaside community which is well known for having many beaches stretching right around its coastline. Due to its pleasant climate, wealth of unspoiled beaches, proximity to lakes, National Parks and State Forests, it has become a popular spot for swimming, surfing, fishing and camping. Although, if camping is not your style, there is no shortage of holiday accommodation in Dalmeny to suit all holiday styles and price ranges from budget accommodation to serviced apartments including larger family accommodation such as holiday houses which are all available as holiday rentals.

An Impressive Choice of Beaches

Beaches are what this small community of fewer than 2,000 inhabitants is best known for. The town, built upon headlands, looks out over the Pacific Ocean to its south, while to its north lies a coastal lagoon, Lake Mumumga. This peaceful location with over 10 kilometres of pristine beaches is the perfect base from which to explore the Eurobodalla stretch of coast and a haven for those in search of tranquillity.

Of the wide choice of beaches in which to swim, surf or fish, Brou Beach, on its northern coastline and also commonly known as Dalmeny Beach, is the most popular, being within walking distance to the town centre and its shops. Beautiful Brou beach is almost seven kilometres of long sandy beach, backing on to three lakes and the Eurobodalla National Park. It joins onto Jemison’s beach to form a beautiful, long fine sandy stretch of beach which is just perfect for walks.

Brou Beach is popular for swimming, surfing and body boarding, and is patrolled by lifesavers in the summer. Yet, if you’re here looking to wind down and relax, it’s a quiet and tranquil place where you can sit by the pool of your holiday home or on the terrace of your holiday apartment with a refreshment in one hand and your favourite book in the other, or, if you’re a nature lover, this is a wonderful place for bird watching, and you’ll delight in the colourful displays with King Parrots and lorikeets, amongst many other species of Australian birdlife. Due to its location, wedged between the sparkling azure waters of the Pacific Ocean and the National Park with its wildlife and many lakes, Brou Beach is a popular camping area, and there is a large camping ground overlooking the southern end of Brou Beach.

A beautiful beach with crystal clear waters, golden sands and rock pools, Yabbarra Beach on Dalmeny’s Eastern Coast, is a more popular beach with surfers, as the waves are usually stronger hear than at Brou’s Beach Dalmeny Beach. As there are many rocks to the side of this beach, it can be dangerous during rips. Yabbarra Beach is never patrolled by lifesavers.

The Lifestyle Dreams are Made of

But, with stunning scenery, national parks, abundant wildlife, birdlife and marine life, lakes, camping areas and picnic grounds, and a wide choice of accommodation, quaint little Dalmeny is much more than just beaches, and can provide the best holiday for the whole family. Follow the scenic tourist drive to Narooma, 9 kilometre drive to enjoy dramatic beach views with many lookouts and fishing platforms along the stretch of sealed road and a walking or cycling track which can be accessed at various points along the way for short walks. From September to November, keep a lookout for migrating whales. Another unforgettable experience for the whole family while at Dalmeny is a trip out to Montague Island to view its lighthouse and seal colony.

Eurobodalla National Park is another excellent daytrip and offers a range of activities. Go surfing at one of its beaches, or fishing at Brou Lake or Mumumga Lake. Some of the lakes are also popular for waterskiing or kayaking. Nature lovers can explore the park along one of its many walking tracks, go bird watching or spotting kangaroos and other Australian native fauna. There are camping grounds in the park, some of them right by the beach, but those not adventurous enough to make the bush their overnight abode , may still enjoy a picnic within one of the many picnic areas, and in the evening enjoy all the comforts of home in their self-contained accommodation.

Dalmeny offers a complete holiday for the whole family with an endless choice of activities to enjoy, swimming, fishing, waterskiing, kayaking, walking, hiking, cycling, camping, and many others, yet its peacefulness and serenity are ideal for those wanting to sit back and relax by the pool of their holiday villa, reading a book or simply watching the whales swim past.

Warm and Sunny Almost All Year Round

With a temperate climate moderated by the sea, Dalmeny enjoys warm summers with winters being mild and sunny, although nights can be quite cold. The wettest months are the summer months, with some thunderstorms from November to March. Any time of year is suitable for visiting Dalmeny to enjoy its tranquillity, walks in nature, and beautiful scenery, but the best time to enjoy a dip in its popular beaches is during the summer months from November to February, although spring and autumn are also excellent times to visit Dalmeny.

This property has a beautiful setting and was the perfect spot for a south coast getaway. We can't wait to return!

The house has a well equipped kitchen and we appreciated the little extras provided. We love the beauty of the Dalmeny area and the abundance of dog friendly beaches nearby.
