Hyamms beach is located outside of Booderee National Park, so no park entry fees. Great coffee and food close by. The beach does get a surf not much but can be fun.

It had been torrential rain for 2 days but the sun popped out for a hour and the wonderful white sand and aqua waters appeared. A little slice of heaven of our wonderful coastline.

Not at all! All beaches in Australia are public as far as I know.
