Mayfield Bay Conservation Area is popular for swimming and also diving, snorkelling and fishing.
Mayfield Beach is a 1.5 km sandy beach and is accessible from Mayfield Campground and Mayfield Jetty Road.
Mayfield Campground offers easy access camping – shady tent, campervan and caravan sites that are a stone's throw to a sandy family-friendly beach.
Nearby boat launching at the southern end of the reserve is permitted at Mayfield Jetty Road, a 4WD only access for small boats.
Part of the reserve is incorporated into the Rocky Hills Road Station and Rocky Hills Probation Station Heritage Site. The convict-built Three Arch Bridge is a product of the Probation Station and is preserved under the Tasman Hwy. A short 150m walk from Mayfield Campground will allow you to explore the convict-built bridge and transport you to a bygone era.
Day use picnic facilities at Mayfield Beach and Tirzah Beach pull-off at Rocky Hills are a popular addition to the site.
