Deeban Spit

Striking Sand Spit

Deeban Spit was originally created as a result of the excavation of 300,000 tonnes of sand from the nearby fish hatchery at Cabbage Tree Basin during the early 1900s.

Together with dredging, storms, currents and other sand movements resulted in it's present form since the 1960s.

Deeban Spit has become a breeding area for migratory birds including the Eastern Curlew and Bar-tailed Godwit. Both birds migrate here from Siberia, arriving around August-September.  Care should be taken to not disturb these birds or their nesting areas.

Access to the spit  is via Bonnie Vale Beach located in the Royal National Park which borders the western edge of Bundeena via Sea Breeze Lane.
