Pottsville Beach encompasses a mixture of original established homes on the coastal roads and modern estates that continue to expand and house a growing population. 

Koala Beach is the first estate in the area, an eco-friendly development known for architecturally designed homes integrating with bush surrounds. A no dog or cat covenant ensures a quiet neighborhood where the wildlife is less likely to be attacked by domestic predators.

Seabreeze Estate originally began to take shape around 2003 in its first stage and is continuing to expand to this day. The estate presents with a modern, predominately contemporary style and offers easy access to the nearby freeway. Local shops are just a very short drive down the road.

Black Rock is located at the southern end of Pottsville Waters, an area which has seen significant progress in recent times with construction activity. The main street, Overall Drive, runs along the beautiful Pottsville estuary and offers easy access to Black Rock beach. The estuary has proven to be a popular swimming and fishing spot for tourists and residents alike. 

Town amenities include an IGA, doctors surgery, hardware shop and various cafe's, takeaway shops, bowls club, tavern and a primary school.
