Description

Catherine Hill Bay's jetty was used up until recently to load coal from the local mines.

Description

Catherine Hill Bay is a tiny heritage town, where you feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Largely untouched by development, the coastline looks as it would have 100 years ago, with a stunning beach, popular for fishing, surfing and swimming.

The beach also has the unusual icon of a large coal-loading jetty, which has only recently been decommissioned. Patrolled in the warmer months, Catherine Hill Bay beach is also home to the Catho Classic in January, and has featured in a number of surf movies.
