About

The relaxed atmosphere of Peggs Beach Conservation Area is created by its no-frills facilities. The idyllic beachfront at Peggs Beach and the seductive locations along the Black River inlet more than compensate for the basic amenities.

Boat launching facilities are a boon to both day visitors a​nd campers who can try for a big fish in Bass Strait during the calm of the morning and change their tackle for smaller species in the sheltered waters of Black River in the afternoon and evening.

Swimming at Brickmakers Bay towards Cowrie Point to the east is a delight and there are ample opportunities to beachcomb for shells along the wide expanse of sand.  

The Peggs Beach Conservation Area is dog and horse-friendly. Dog on leads are welcome and horse riding is permitted below the high-tide mark.
