Redhead Beach

This beach is located around 16.5km south of Newcastle. The off-leash dog area extends from Second Creek, southerly for approx 700 metres.


Absolutely 100% favourite spot for my boy Bodhi is redhead beach, Newcastle. It stretches for 9 miles and is largely dog friendly, we are blessed to live just ten minutes from it and visit regularly!
