 East Beach Tourist Park TASMANIA

East Beach Tourist Park - Low Head, Tasmania

East Beach  is located on the eastern side of Low Head and is the closest surfing beach to Georgetown and Launceston and consequently a relatively popular beach. The Low Head Surf Life Saving Club operated at east beach between 1950 and 1984. The beach commences at the base of Low Head, which extends 2 km to the northwest. It curves to the northeast for 1 m, past the small mouth of Cimitiere Creek, to a cobble-sand foreland tied to rock flats that separates it from the eastern beach. The beach is relatively exposed to westerly waves, which average 1 m, but can be considerably higher during strong winds. The waves combine with tides up to 3 m high to maintain a moderately steep sandy high tide beach grading into patches of cobbles along the rear of the beach and fronted by a usually continuous intertidal bar and a wider surf zone usually cut by several low tide rips. It is backed by a near continuous foredune increasing in height and width to the east, with vegetated transgressive dunes beginning east of the creek. Rock flats derived from reworked Tertiary sediments increase to the east of the creek and contribute cobbles to the high tide beach. There is road access, a car park and of coarse the 'East Beach Tourist Park' has beach access at the western end of the beach as well as several other points over it's 22 acres of park.


East Beach is a moderately hazardous beach owing to its exposure to higher westerly waves and the presence of rips at low tide. The safest swimming is at the more popular western end, toward high tide and close inshore. Be careful of the rips at low tide and the increasing rocks to the east.


This is a popular surfing spot for the Launceston surfers and one of the first places to check out. It usually has beach breaks with conditions determined by the waves, wind and state of the tide.
