Map of Potato Point, NSW 2545

Potato Point is a village in the Eurobodalla Shire lying on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is connected by road to the town of Bodalla, and surrounded by the Eurobodalla National Park. The Yuin are considered to be the traditional owners of the region. At the 2006 census, Potato Point had a population of 136 people and 145 private dwellings. The only non-residential facilities are the local rural fire brigade depot which houses two appliances, toilet and shower block, boat ramp, two small parks and a telephone box.

Remains of a wharf jut into the sea over the rocks of the Point, which include wooden piers, thick iron staples and various carvings into the softer rock. Further around to the south are the rusting remains of an old boiler and other machinery.

The beaches on either side of the Point are Potato Beach (north) and Jemison's Beach (south). The latter is open to rough seas and wild winds, whereas the former is more sheltered and known locally for good surfing breaks and fine beach fishing, especially of salmon and bream. Cod, eels and luderick are taken from the rocks of the Point. Notable diving locations are found offshore from the Point, which can be accessed from the local north-facing boat ramp.

To the north lies the Beachcomber Holiday Park and Lake Brunderee. This small tidal lake is connected intermittently to the ocean by Potato Creek, and is a major habitat for swans and chestnut teal, as well as an important drought refuge.
