Much of the southern half was quarried for basalt. Beach NSW 391 is a curving 150 m long strip of sand and cobbles located in a north-facing bay on the northern side of the point, all fronted by a rocks and reefs, with waves usually low to calm at the shore (Fig. 4.318). The beach can only be reached via the Bombo Beach turn off and a walk past the old quarry and down the hill. Bicycle riders can turn off the bike path that parallels the railway line and reach the top of the beach.
