It's a long stretch of beach running north of Macquarie Heads and Hells Gates on the West Coast of Tasmania. It is close to Strahan and parallel to the Strahan Airport runway. It extends as far north as Trial Harbour and the coast immediately west of Zeehan.
Exposed to the ocean with no landmass at this longitude between it and South America, this beach can be exposed to extreme weather conditions. In Serious weather it can have large extended lines of breakers, and a swell at the Cape Sorell Waverider Bouy at up to 20+metres.
Whale stranding frequently occurs along this stretch of the West Coast and can be difficult to remedy due to the isolated location and low population numbers to assist in whale rescue.
When I lived in Queenstown for 4 years I often when in school holidays to stay with the local Strahan Policeman and his wife for a holiday. The Policeman and myself would drive all along Ocean Beach once a week to see if all was well and if anything odd had been washed up by the sea to sand.
When laying in bed at night back in Strahan one could hear the roar of Ocean Beach.
The day my husband visited Ocean Beach it was very pleasant with only a little breeze.
These two photos were taken on the way to Strahan and Ocean Beach.
