Nine Mile Beach (also called Tuncurry Beach) is located adjacent to the township of Tuncurry.
It's well known for its good surfing at the southern end along the breakwall. Here you will also find the Tuncurry Rockpool, an enclosed swimming area nestled into the breakwall. With a kiosk, children’s play area and barbecue facilities this is an extremely popular spot for families.
This beach is not patrolled.
For dog walking, Nine Mile Beach has an off-leash area north of the beach access track at Beach Street. Dogs can also be walked on-leash at specific times in the morning and early evening south of that same beach access track at Beach Street up to the breakwall.
In the winter months you will witness the annual Mullet run where fisherman haul huge nets of spawning mullet out of the ocean.
