Etty Bay is a popular locals beach located just 15km from the township of Innisfail. The town is just big enough for the beach, a road, the Surf Life Saving Club and a small caravan park.

The soft white-sand beach is backed by a narrow, tree-shaded reserve, then steep, forested slopes rising up to 250 m behind the beach. Etty Bay is frequented by the famous Southern Cassowary, seen patrolling the area most days with sights more common during the early morning and late afternoon.

Visitors are able to swim at the beach, but read the warning signs and stay between the flags or in the stinger nets during the summer months.
