Nudists at the Beach

Sunnyside North Beach

Sunnyside North Beach at Mount Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula is a long beach bordered by a private property. In the warmer months there is a great mix of singles, couples and families, particularly from midday through to sunset. It is a very friendly beach, and you can usually find people from the various forums and social clubs in attendance.

From the city drive down the Nepean Highway to Frankston. Continue 7 to 8 km and then look for the sign to Sunnyside Beach. Turn right here and drive down this road for about 800 metres to the car park. On busy days, you may have to park well short of the car park and be careful of driveways and No Parking signs. Walk on to Sunnyside Beach then proceed north around the rocky point to North Sunnyside.

Point Impossible Beach

The beach at Point Impossible is very typical of much of Victoria's southern coastline with a very wide expanse of sand sloping up to a backdrop of huge vegetated sand dunes.

To get to Point Impossible from Geelong head south over the Barwon River and then take the first turn left and follow the signs toward Breamlea. About 1.6 km short of Breamlea turn right into Blackgate Road. Continue for some 3 km and take the first road to the left. Follow this to the point then south west behind the dunes for another 2 km where, about 200 metres short of the rubbish tip, a track on your left leads into the car park.

Alternatively you can take the Torquay road from Geelong and turn left into Blackgate Road about 4 km past Mt Duneed. You should then find the road to Point Impossible about 4 km down this road on your right.

Southside Beach

Southside Beach was moved in 1986 further NE up the beach between Bells Beach and Point Addis. See below for a PDF showing the 3 areas, with the orange area being the current location.

Access is gained by turning off the Great Ocean Road west of Torquay into Bells Boulevard or into Jarosite Road to the north east of Anglesea. Southside is just to the east of Point Addis.

Campbell's Cove Beach

Campbell's Cove was Victoria's first legal "optional clothing" beach (1986). In September 2015 Wyndham Council changed this to clothing required.
