Queensland Beach is located in Halifax County
Queensland Beach was one of the original 15 beaches first supervised by the Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service in 1973. It is one of only nine beaches that have remained with the NSLS since the program was initiated.
Queensland Beach features change rooms, outhouses, and a 300m beach area.
Queensland Beach is a particularly safe beach to swim. There are no rips or currents, and generally no surf. On occasion, however, Queensland can experience large "dumping" waves close to shore as a result of the steep slope of the beach. It's a fantastic family day spot to hit on warm summer days.
The supervised swimming area is marked by two red and yellow flags on the beach and two red buoys in the water. Generally, the lifeguards supervise a 200 metre area, however, on busier days, the supervised area is usually increased.
Queensland generally experiences warmer water temperatures and smaller surf conditions than most other Nova Scotia Beaches located on the Atlantic. This is likely due to its sheltered position within Saint Margaret's Bay.
Lifeguards enforce a "No Diving" policy in shallow water at all times to, prevent head, neck and back injuries. At Queensland, balls and Frisbees are not permitted within the supervised area. This is to ensure the safety of persons in in the supervised area. Hard shell boats are prohibited from launching, landing or travelling in the supervised area. During days of offshore winds inflatables are not permitted as they are easily blown out to sea.
