Australia 

I live at Belmont and not have heard 9 Mile Beach referred to as Belmont National Park - I appreciate it is now pay to drive on the beach - however Googling it, I see it is the old Wetlands management area is now a National Park.

Yes is a great spot and the sand is very soft and I have got bogged there many times but able to get out on all occasions.

There was a time I could drive the 1 km from home and be on the beach but as usual too many bogans got in there and mucked it up for everyone so now is a restricted area with hefty term access charges - yearly fees are not too bad but of course there should be no fees but understandable.

The whole area is not natural as the sand miners have been right through there over the last 90 years or so and the area is all reconstructed. As well the area was also owned by BHP with a couple of coal mines and infrastructure. Note the Golf Club was allowed to remain at the southern end.

Unfortunately the area has been loved to death.
