Queens Beach, NSW
QUEENS BEACH IS QUITE PRIVATE
AND IS BACKED BY
Queens Beach is a tiny strip of sand tucked away on the Sydney Harbour in Vaucluse.
Tiny beach, but big views! While the views of Sydney City and Harbour Bridge across the water are beautiful, the beach comes with some challenges. Parking on Queens Ave (the closest street) is incredibly difficult to find and requires steep streets and many steps to access the beach. Alternatively, Queens Beach can be accessed via the Hermitage Foreshore Walk which extends from Bayview Hill Rd in Rose Bay to Neilson Park/Shark Beach in Vaucluse.
The beach itself is quite private and backed by huge grassy cliffs - great for a picnic on the sand, but the shoreline has many hidden rocks which are something to be aware of if you're planning on swimming.
Small and hidden
Stunning harbour views
Faces west - great for sunsets
KEEP IN MIND
Parking is extremely difficult
Can be lots of rubbish washed up on the shore
Difficult to access unless walking via the Hermitage Foreshore Walk
I FORGOT MY SURFBOARD WAX!
Don't worry, the Beach Without Sand shop has you covered! They're open from 9-5pm everyday.
Street parking on Vaucluse Rd or Queens Ave (but can be very difficult to find).
