Congo Point is a low rock reef composed on Tertiary basalt, backed by 20 m high bluffs composed of Tertiary sandstone. Congo Creek flows out against the rocks (Fig. 4.389) and within the national park, with the camping area on the southern creek entrance. The small Congo settlement is located on the backing bluffs, immediately south of the park boundary. Three beaches (NSW 568-570) extend for 2 km south of the point, with access only in the north at Congo. Congo Beach (NSW 568) runs due south of the point for 1.5 km to the beginning of a 30 m high section of indented basalt cliffs, with the surf zone continuing past the cliffs. The beach is backed by a foredune then bluffs rising to 20 m and the Congo settlement, with a small creek draining across towards the southern end.
