Up the far end of Angourie Back Beach lies a corner of beach nestled into One Man’s Bluff – a broad headland that separates Angourie’s string of beaches from those to the South.
The only access to One Man’s is by walking the beach from Mara Creek or Angourie, and sometimes this isn’t possible or safe at high tide.
One Man’s is pretty as a picture, and often is as unpopulated as the name suggests. Caution must be taken in the water as there’s a few rips. There’s often a rip right up against the headland which is deceptive, as it appears the calmest stretch. They’ll say it a million times, please don’t take any risks when dealing with the ocean.
The rock platform underneath the bluff is accessible at low tide, but be careful as it’s extremely slippery, and the small boulders you’ll walk over to get there aren’t all as stable as they appear – more than one fisherman has hobbled back to Mara Creek nursing a rolled ankle.
Speaking of fishing, check out the fish trap in the corner, the Yaegl mob’s equivalent of a supermarket for thousands of glorious, harmonious years.
