McBrides Beach is in the northern part of Booti Booti National Park at Cape Hawke at Forster. It's accessed only via a steep walking track, completed in 2020.

It's one of those beaches that has you instantly mesmerised and is as good as it looks. It really is the ideal place to escape for the day.

This beach is not patrolled.

There is no 4WD access and camping is not permitted.

Nice place. The track in is easy for a lifted 4wd with big tyres. You will struggle with a stock 4wd in the wet but you will make it if you take the right lines

There’s a new path to the right of the Carpark it’s fairly easy down and steep on the way back. Don’t make the mistake of taking the old 4wd track on the left of the Carpark it’s a challenge to say the least and takes twice as long.

A great spot to enjoy a few hours of peace and serenity. Access the beach by the new 600m walking track. The top of the track is a little bit steep but then backs off so you can enjoy the descent thorough the rainforest before reaching this pretty beach. The vehicle track is currently closed and there is no camping on the beach.

Great over night camp spot. Few too many campers on beach and mozzies were out of control.
