A little known, secluded piece of Paradise!

Half Moon Bay Beach is a small, secluded, sandy beach at the end of Reed Road, bounded by Earl Hill to the North and Half Moon Creek to the South

It is a great place to walk a dog in the off leash area or surrounding undeveloped land. It is also popular for fishing from the beach or rocks.

There is access to the Earl Hill Conservation area via steps from the beach.

The beach has its own carpark and toilets and although not suitable for swimming, is a great place for a peaceful walk or family fun.

Thanks to Denise Crew for photos and information.

Earl Hill Walking Track

Access via either from the Northern end of the beach, or from Robert’s Drive, corner of Flagship Drive, Trinity Beach, the Earl Hill walking track is popular with locals.

Generally considered a relatively easy walking track with amazing views at the top.

Both entry both points have a car park.
