Point Gellibrand Beach (Williamstown)




Point Gellibrand beach is a narrow winding beach dominated by basalt rock flats and boulders. Swimming is best at high tide when the rocks and sand flats are covered.

A road parallels the back of the 500 m long beach, and historic Fort Gellibrand occupies the backing point. The beach faces south-east and consequently (coupled with the point and rocks) receives very low waves. As a result, there are sand flats amongst the rocks.

Point Gellibrand Beach has a General Beach Hazard Rating of 2/10 (Least hazardous).

Review:


A long, narrow beach which has coarse sand full of broken shells and partially covered in sea-weed. The beach is backed by the Steve Brack's promenade and across the road is the Point Gellibrand Coastal Heritage Park
.

The area is quite unattractive for swimming and there are lots of rocks and sea-weed in the water. If you must swim here, there is a section at the south end which is less rocky but still has a lot of sea-weed. Swimming is only a possibility at high tide.

The best suggestion for a family would be to explore the Point Gellibrand Rockpools for sea creatures and look for some sea shells (many are still intact along the beach). If you want a swim head to Williamstown Beach.

Access for Dogs:


Dogs must be on leash.
