This is a fantastic beach and there's a campground (and a few cabins) operated by the NSW National Parks. There are only a handful people at the beach. And yes, there are Kangaroos and Lorikeet birds and other birds. It depends on the time of day if you will see them. If you are camping you'll see them for sure.... More

Reached in late morning and unable to spot any kangaroos though droppings were everywhere. This is more for locals going to the beach side for sun tanning.

Overseas as well as local visitors will love this beautiful spot. Beautiful bird life abounds.... king parrots, rosellas and rainbow lorikeets. Often kangaroos are grazing close to the beach. The beach is sandy not a pebble in sight. Take a picnic or book a campsite. Real Australia ❤️

I had an amazing experience when I visited Pebbly Beach last month (August 2016)! The beach is so nice and the view is magnificent. We saw a lot of kangaroos, they are not afraid of people which is a good thing. The beach is next to a protected Murramarang National Park so hunting and killing of wildlife is prohibited. We...

Usually able to see some kangaroos as they bask in the sun. A beautiful place to visit or stay. Lots more to discover inn the area. A 4WD is recommended especially after the rain.

Beautiful and a secluded beach for a day trip. Kangaroos on the beach are an added attraction :) No shops nearby, hence carry everything you need to make your trip hassle free.

It's a good drive in wherever you're coming from but a really nice way to spend some time in a fairly unspoilt bit of the coast. Kangaroos galore. Birdlife - king parrots especially. Even a few woodducks (I think that's what they were). The beach at "Pebbly" isn't actually very pebbly, but the next bay North will demonstrate why it's... More
