There is plenty of Shade, and a triple tiered grassed area so everyone can sit comfortably with a clear view of the water. Foot showers for sandy feet.

Emu Point is a lovely, family friendly location.

Emu Point is the western side of a deep channel linking Oyster Harbour with the King George Sound. Emu Point Boat Sheds is a boat harbour for vessels up to 20 metres in Oyster Harbour.  The park has climbing ropes and an accessible birds nest swing. 

Cross the peninsula onto the South Side of Emu Point and you'll find another beach at the very northern end of the beautiful Middleton Beach and swim in the waters of King George Sound. The rocky groyne looks directly across the channel at nearby Gull Rock National Park.

Emu Point is a wonderful place to swim, and in summer the sun warms Emu Harbour making it several degrees warmer then the other side of Emu Point on King George Sound.

 A beach wheelchair is available with access to the beach, with the key located at the Emu Point CafĂ©.

Emu Point Pontoon and Lap Swimming Lanes

The 7km Middleton Beach Shared Path to Emu Point is a walk and cycle trail linking Albany's 2 stunning beaches.  This is well worth it! 
We tend to start at Middleton Beach and cycle to Emu Point, stay for ice cream and then ride back again.  Dog Friendly.

As you can see, the tree lined grass area offers plenty of shade yet offers direct beach access.

It is possible to walk from the beach to the swimming jetty and only get your bottom half wet. The turquoise waters make it easy to swim.

Emu Point Channel to Oyster Harbour

The channels, which wind through the harbour, are constantly filled with boats headed in or out of the Harbour or up the Kalgan River which feeds Oyster Harbour.

Emu Point Channel is an active commercial fishing channel and swimming should be avoided at all times.
