Old Bar Beach
Old Bar beach is the closest beach area to Taree, just 16kms. Generally, an uncrowded beach and out of holiday periods you can have parts of the beach all to yourself. A Holiday Park adjoins the beach. During the January summer holiday period there's a sand modelling competition which has become a traditional and popular family fun activity. There's an ideal walking distance between Old Bar Beach and Wallabi Point (2.5km). A unique aspect of this beach is that it's located alongside a heritage-listed airstrip so that flying enthusiasts can fly into the airstrip and then go to the beach. There is a surf lifesaving club at the beach.
