Killiecrankie Picnic Area

Killiecrankie foreshore hosts a free gas BBQ for day use only and the carpark can accommodate about 50 vehicles. Ideal for groups, other facilities include picnic tables, fresh water and a public toilet and shower.

Killiecrankie beach occupies the southern corner of the bay, where the Killiecrankie Road terminates, and the small settlement is nestled in the lower slopes behind the western end of the beach.

The beach commences amongst the low granite rock and to the lee of Nobby Rock, a low islet. It curves to the east for 800m to the mouth of Killiecrankie Creek mouth. The low gradient white sand beach faces north across the bay.

Waves are very low to calm in the western corner, increasing to about 1 m at the creek mouth. They maintain a low gradient reflective to low tide terrace beach, with rock reefs and seagrass lying 100 m offshore. The western end of the beach is used for launching small boats and several fishing boats are usually moored off the beach.

A privately owned camping area is situated a short distance away please contact Jude on 03 6359 8464 to book a spot.
