Sydney Nudist Beaches

about nudism in australia ...

Sydney Nudist Beaches

Nudism, also referred as naturism, is legal in Australia provided you do it in an appropriate place. Outside of privately run clubs and naturist venues, there are very few places where you can practice naturism legally.

In NSW there are five beaches where nudity is permitted legally. These are:

  • Sydney: Lady Bay (aka Lady Jane), Obelisk, Cobblers
  • South Coast: Werrong, Armonds
  • North Coast: Birdie, Samurai, Grassy Head

There are also a few beaches where local councils have erected signs indicating that nude bathing is permitted. You can legally be nude on those beaches, but their status can change at short notice. These are:

  • Sydney: Little Congwong, Jibbon
  • South Coast: North Scarborough, Jervis Bay, Haywards, Barragoot, Bournda, Merimbula Point
  • North Coast: Stockton, Shelly, Little Diggers, Kings

Note: Please look for signs showing that nudism is allowed on the beach.
