Bakers Beach

Midway along the northern coast of Tasmania, Bakers Beach lies next to a small rural community of the same name with a permanent population of just 60 individuals. Forming an impressive ribbon of golden sand, it runs along the Bass Strait for close to seven kilometres. It has a very slight curve to its otherwise straight appearance as it faces northeast.

Its rough midpoint can be reached by car via the roads within Narawntapu National Park. Its car-free eastern side is the most secluded as a result, but a popular spot for walking. At its more easily reachable western side is the Rubicon Estuary. This attracts a variety of wading birds, including a significant proportion of the world’s pied oystercatcher population.

Bakers Beach has long been the best known of Tasmania’s unoffical nudist beaches. There have been calls for an area of the eastern end of the beach to be put aside for naturists, but as of yet this has not happened.

Facilities including toilets and picnic tables are located at the beach’s centre point as well as at Griffiths Point. Strong currents mean swimmers should remain wary. There are no patrols made by lifeguards.
