Grasstree Beach

Postcode: 4740

Fifteen minutes down the road from Sarina is Grasstree Beach, situated on Zelma Bay. Once you’ve discovered the spot you’ll be hooked.

Grasstree Beach has a wonderful climate and is protected by a group of islands. The beach itself is magnificent, and beach walking is a favourite activity. Sarina, with banks, supermarkets and services, is 13 kilometres away. Fishing is a popular pastime, and anglers will find great opportunities for both beach and creek fishing, or even reef fishing if they prefer. The creeks have flathead, whiting and bream, so holiday makers can catch a few good meals during their stay. Boat ramp facilities are available at the creek.

Grasstree Beach dates back to the 1880’s when gold was found in the hills at the back of the beach.

The Grasstree Beach area is ideal for the land based angler. The rocky headland (Point Victor) at the northern end of grasstree beach holds a wide variety of species that can be caught from the bank. The turn of the tide is a good time to fish Point Victor, especially at dawn, dusk or night. The southern end of the beach (near the mouth of Cabage Tree Creek) is a good spot to target flathead, bream & whiting. Fish the rising tide with yabbies & light tackle for some productive fun.

Grasstree Beach boat ramp provides good access from half tide up as the creek becomes very shallow at low tide. The ramp is diagonally opposite the Campwin Beach ramp on Castrades Inlet. The boat ramp is ideal for smaller boats to access the rocks around Coral Point, the rocks around the northern end of the beach & Cabbage Tree Creek. Be careful using the ramp as it is quiet steep.
