Lucky Bay

The white beach and turquoise waters of this wide, sheltered bay are a must-see and a great place to enjoy water-based activities.

    Details

      Description

      While exploring the south coast of Australia in 1802, Matthew Flinders sailed a dangerous route through the Recherche Archipelago. He named Lucky Bay when his vessel HMS Investigator took shelter here from a summer storm. The botanist Robert Brown went ashore and explored a diverse and largely unknown flora, discovering and naming many new species.

      Enjoy a walk along the beach to a lookout where a plaque celebrates this historic event.

      Boating and beach driving

      The sheltered bay is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, fishing, surfing and launching small boats.

      Be aware that these beaches are notoriously treacherous for vehicles and it is easy to become bogged in the most innocent looking wet or dry sand. Ask the ranger about surface conditions and tides.

      If you drive your four-wheel-drive vehicle onto the beach, beware of pedestrians and drive slowly. Normal road rules apply.
