The name of the village comes from the Aboriginal word that means "by the water". The popularity of Cabarita Beach just keeps growing year after year.Things to do
Cabarita Beach is a premier spot for surf enthusiasts, and you can ride the waves as they crash onto the shore. If you’ve never tried to surf but are keen to learn, a number of different surfing schools can help you to realise your dreams. Take a whale-watching trip in the migratory season for some excellent up close views. For even more fun on the water, you can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and boat trips along the river, as well as terrific fishing. Enjoy long sunny days of swimming and soaking up the sun too, and feel your cares simply drift away as you chill out in beautiful surroundings.
There are also huge areas of protected wetlands that are home to a diverse variety of wildlife, and you can spend fantastic days bush walking in the nearby national parks. Mount Warning National Park is a particularly favourite destination. Tropical Fruit World, with its Big Avocado, is also close at hand. Picnic spots and BBQ areas are plentiful, adding to the totally relaxed vibe of Carabita Beach.Shopping and dining
