Shark Beach

Sydney experiences

Don't be fooled by the name! Shark Beach was named this because it faces Shark Bay and is protected by Shark nets. The calm and safe waters make this beach perfect for swimming, especially if you are avoiding the rough surf beaches like Bondi, and want a place for young children to play and swim safely.

Shark Beach

Shark beach is part of Nielsen Park in the Sydney Harbour National Park, and it is located in the suburb of Vaucluse. This area of Sydney has many small and picturesque beaches, with white sands and refreshing waters. The views of Sydney Harbour from Shark Beach are amazing at any time of day or the year, and even on cloudy days the water is still be great for swimming, and the view still amazing. Shark Beach is also a great location if you are planning on viewing yachts and ships on the harbour. The best times to do are during a national event such as Australia Day or New Year's Eve, however thousands of other people know this also, and locals will arrive early enough to score the best vantage point on the edge of Shark Bay.

Shark Beach


The surrounding area of the beach is very green, and sometimes it can be hard to believe you are in the middle of a large capital city. Shark Beach is popular for corporate picnics, as many office workers in the city take advantage of the large green spaces, and close proximity to their work. This is the same for families, who can easily take up most of the adjoining green park, including the BBQs and other local facilities, so if planning a picnic, avoid busy times and be prepared to jostle for your spot. Address: Coolong Road, Vaucluse, NSW, 2030.
