Tiny and tranquil, Taylors Beach can be found tucked away between Salamander Bay and Tilligerry.
Other than housing the commercial estate for the region to one side, Taylors Beach is mostly untouched. The national park remains intact, and is home to many of the area’s natural koala population. A single, winding road takes you to the tiny suburb, which is surrounded by lush bush and water views.
The shoreline is dotted with tall pine trees and there is a public jetty ideal for fishing. Having both a grassed area and sandy beach makes it an ideal picnic setting. Facilities include:
- Public Amenities
- Barbeque & Picnic Facilities
- Play Equipment
- Public Wharf
- Boat Ramp
On the Sand:
There are no patrolled beaches in Taylors Beach, however the local beach (Banks Beach) is well within the safety of the headlands and is a calm water beach without waves.
There is limited street parking along the foreshore, though most people staying in the area are within a very short walk of the water.
There is a boat ramp on the very tip of the peninsula, accessed via Taylor Road.
In the Sea:
Average seawater temperatures for Taylors Beach peak in the range of 22 to 25°C (72 to 77°F) in early February and are at their lowest mid August, in the range 17 to 20°C (63 to 68°F).
Water clarity is usually good in Taylors Beach.
On the Land:
The perfect place to wind down and get away from it all, Taylors Beach feels like a hidden oasis designed to get back to nature. With very few homes or residents in the area, peace and quiet can almost be guaranteed any time of the day.
Grassed areas and parks spot to town, making it an ideal picnic location. Public toilets can be located at the end of Taylor Road, by the jetty.
Don’t forget to look up! You may just spot a sleepy koala taking a siesta.
