Community: Murray Head
White and red sand beach. Clamming and beach combing. No Facilities. The beach overlooks the five Murray Islands, of which three are Protected Natural Areas.
Walk to the northeast end of the beach where once stood the front range light of Beach Point Lighthouse, at the entrance to Murray River. This small lighthouse was pulled from it moorings and washed down the beach during a violent storm in December of 2010. It lined up with a rear range light on Penny Point to enable mariners to avoid the sandbars off Poverty Beach. There are fishing harbours and wharfs in the estuary at Murray Harbour, Murray River, Machon Point and Mink River.
