Severs Beach is a fantastic spot on the Pambula River with its crystal clear waters and sandy beach. The beach is backed by Aboriginal sites of significance, with many middens in the area. The beach also boasts two wood fired BBQ settings in a nice grassy area. A great spot for a picnic and to wet the toes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Yuin people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Severs Beach
Severs Beach

Severs Beach is a sandy beach on the eastern bank of the Pambula River, in Ben Boyd National Park. The beach faces towards the ocean but is about 1.4km from the mouth of the river, making this a pleasant area for picnicking, swimming, fishing, boating or just relaxing. There are a couple of metal fire pits, a clear grassy area, a rock shelf and a small lagoon. The chances of seeing some of the resident kangaroos are pretty good. The beach is accessible by boat or a short walking track (partly boardwalk). There is no surf life saving patrol at this beach.
