Flint and Steel Beach

Flint and Steel Beach - Australia
© Martin7d2

Situated close to the northernmost point of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park north of Sydney, Flint and Steel Beach is an area of sand just a few tens of metres in length. Overlooking the Hawkesbury River, it can only be reached on foot or by boat. The nearest car park is located approximately one kilometre away in either direction along a signposted path.

Backed by a grassy hillock, both sides of Flint and Steel Beach’s richly-coloured sands are marked by high headlands. Providing a gently entry into the river’s freshwater, its sands are also edged by smooth rocks to one side.

A favourite with local families with children, it isn’t recommended for those with pushchairs because of the stepped access down to the beach from its path. There are no facilities at Flint and Steel Beach, and no lifeguard service. Secluded and rarely hosting more than a handful of visitors, the local bird life is another highlight.

Given its off-the-beaten-path nature Flint and Steel Beach is sometimes frequented by naturists.
