Nudist Beach in Sydney Australia

Nudism, also referred as naturism, is legal in Australia provided you do it in an appropriate place. Outside of privately run clubs and naturist venues, there are very few places where you can practice naturism legally.

There are some beaches where nudity is permitted legally. These are:



Sydney: Lady Bay (aka Lady Jane), Obelisk, Cobblers



South Coast: Werrong, Armonds



North Coast: Birdie, Samurai, Grassy Head

There are also a few beaches where local councils have erected signs indicating that nude bathing is permitted. You can legally be nude on those beaches, but their status can change at short notice. These are:

Sydney: Little Congwong, Jibbon
South Coast: North Scarborough, Jervis Bay, Haywards, Barragoot, Bournda, Merimbula Point
North Coast: Stockton, Shelly, Little Diggers, Kings

Note: Please look for signs showing that nudism is allowed on the beach.

If you've never been to a nudist beach before, here are a few guidelines:

Gawking is impolite. If you want to go to the nudist beach for a thrill, do everyone a favor and buy a magazine instead. Ask for people's consent before taking their photograph nude. If you're sunbathing nude in a secluded area, leave a bathing suit on a rock to let others know they are approaching an unclothed person. If you're uncomfortable having your suit out of reach, bring a spare.

On a wide open beach, position yourself in the open so you can see people coming and put something on before they get there if you need to. Get dressed before you leave the naturist beach. Be friendly, but respect others' rights to privacy. Avoid sexual activity. It's illegal and offensive. Advances of an unwelcome or unwanted nature are not acceptable anywhere, and especially at a nudist beach.

Be Prepared. Sometimes, the nudist beach doesn't have any amenities. Bring water, food, towel, sunscreen and anything else you need. Keep the nudist beach clean. If you carried it in, carry it back out.
