1. How do I get to Austinmer Beach?
If you are coming directly from Sydney the best way to get to the beach is via the coast road. Turn off into the Royal National Park and take a scenic drive through the park until you cross Otford and get onto Lawrence Hargrave Drive this will take you on the breathtaking coast road and over the Sea Cliff Bridge. If you are coming from the South you will access Austinmer Beach from Lawrence Hargrave Drive either off Bulli Pass or accessed from the Princes Highway or Memorial Drive. If you are catching a train just walk down Moore Street cross over Lawrence Hargrave Drive and you will see the beach.
