Nice family beach vacation in NSW (near Bateman's Bay)?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, we are now in Canberra and loving it. We will have our 20 year wedding anniversary in a month, and we've decided to take our 4 year old to the coast for 4-5 days for a beach vacation. We want something within reasonable driving distance of Canberra - no more than 3-4 hours. We would like a laid back community with decent facilities (a range of food shops, a few playgrounds, etc) and most of all a beautiful, quiet beach. We'd probably prefer something with a lifeguard because I'm reading all the stories of deaths on unpatrolled beaches in NSW!

We have been in Australia for less than a month so we definitely need some help!
