Extending along Maroubra Beach, Arthur Byrne Reserve separates the surf and sand from Marine Parade and the shopping strip beyond. The park has BBQs, undercover picnic tables and access to bathrooms, showers and kiosks.

Getting To Arthur Byrne Reserve

Arthur Byrne Reserve is on Marine Parade, between Fitzgerald Avenue and Maroubra Road. Surprisingly, there is a good chance of finding parking, even in the summer. The 4 hour parking limits imposed in the car parks that run the length of the reserve seem just right. Failing that, there is limited off street parking behind the shopping strip.

Here’s a map link to get you started. There are no trains on the eastern beaches. There are frequent buses, however.

BBQs, Surf and Shade

With all the risks associated with sun exposure, it’s good to take a break from the beach. Find respite beneath the trees, or under the numerous covered tables and benches around the reserve, while the kiosk and surf club serve as windbreaks on an otherwise unprotected beach. Bring the whole gang and cook up a few steaks on the outdoor BBQs that dot the park
