Autumn Beach Treasure

Autumn is one of our favourite times anywhere on the NSW coast. The water is usually still quite warm, winds often light from the west, the blues of the ocean deeper and the crowds have gone! Sometimes it feels like people just forget to go to the beach once summer ends, which makes the many beaches and rock pools of the south coast the ideal playground for you and your family.  We love exploring the rockpools at Werri Beach, Walkers Beach, Shelly and Seven Mile/Gerroa Beach where these pics have been taken…. all just moments from The Shed.

 

Waves

The South Coast is well known for its great range of waves, both beach and reef breaks, with a couple of the more famous ones just under an hour from The Shed. Thankfully there are usually plenty of quality waves on offer closer by, with some amazing local talent pushing their skills to the limit at the local beaches. You might even catch locals Sally Fitzgibbons & Owen Wright tearing it up between stops on the ASP World Tour. Whether you’re prepared to get amongst the busier bussle of Werri on weekends or head further up or down the coast to find some quieter quality – you’ll be sure to get some nice ones. And if you’re just starting out, Gerroa is known as one of the friendliest learner waves around!

Gerroa Beach

Seven Mile Beach or ‘Gerroa Beach’ as it’s known to the locals, is an incredible stretch of beach to the South of THE SHED.  Fine white sand that seems to roll on forever (for 7 miles in fact!), sheltered rock pool areas and rolling waves in the Northern corner perfect for snorkelling or learning to surf and when the wind hits down beach an incredible playground for daredevil kite and wind surfers.

Walkers Beach

This magical spot is the backdrop to the picturesque Gerringong Golf Course and only a hop skip and a jump away from us. We are lucky enough to view this stunning secluded beach from THE SHED, which at times can offer some great wedgy beach breaks, salmon and tailor according to the local fisherman, and rock pool fun for the kids. Walkers Beach is only accessible through the North end of Gerringong Golf Course.
