Our hostess used to bring her family here for body surfing because of the large rollers and the long exceptionally clean stretch of beach. It was fantastic to see.

Beautiful part of our coast lots of Sun and pure white sand. Small lookout overlooking the beach. The beach is named after the crashing breakers that seem to resonate against the coastal dunes. Lovely peaceful setting.

On a family day trip out we stopped at freemans lookout near boomer beach to try & spot some whales. Unfortunately no whales seen, but utilised the walking trails & walked down to boomer beach from the lookout. Great family activity.
