Bargara and the Coral Coast

Situated on the coastline of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Bargara and the Coral Coast offer an idyllic beachside lifestyle. With an array of beaches painting the coastline, finding the perfect place to surf or snooze is a breeze.

You’ve heard of island hopping but have you heard of beach hopping? With Elliott Heads and Riverview in the South, Moore Park Beach in the North and a variety of amazing swimming and exploration beaches in between, visiting just one beach is not an option.

If Bargara is the lifestyle capital of the Southern Great Barrier Reef than Kelly’s Beach is the family-holiday capital. This golden stretch of beach offers a popular surf lifesaver-patrolled beach, as well as ‘The Basin’, a calm rock-walled swimming lagoon. Put on your snorkels and check out the fish that swim in these waters or catch the tide into the causeway. This popular swimming hole is also home to shaded beach BBQ spots, kid’s playgrounds, and is lined with family-friendly accommodation - so stay as long as you like!
