Hobie Beach at low tide

At low tide the rocky shore line next to the main swimming beach at Hobie Beach (with Shark Rock Pier) gets exposed. In the summer you often find people with young children wading through the ponds in search of something interesting. The one day we found an octopus under one of the rocks which really intrigued Chaos Boy. There are normally also a couple of bird species hanging around, but for me the most interesting by far is the endangered Black Oyster Catcher.


  1. Is that a pier in the background? It looks like an unfinished bridge.

  2. Yes, it's the peer!

    I love this beach - so interesting with every change of the tides!

  3. It does look like a lovely place for kiddies to play! Would love to pop down for the afternoon and let the boys play!
