Towra Point is a low dynamic sand spit located at the mouth of the Georges River and backed by the extensive mangroves of Woolooware, Towra, Weeney and Quibray bays. The spit has a western and eastern arm, which contains four low energy beaches (BB 18-21). All the beaches and much of the mangroves are located in the Towra Point Nature Reserve. The westernmost beach (BB 18) extends east of the low sandy Pelican Point for 320 m. It consists of a low curving dynamic strip of sand fronted by 80 m wide sand flats and backed by older vegetated spits and mangroves. Five hundred metres to the north is the equally dynamic Elephants Trunk (BB 19); a 530 m long north-facing strip of low wave-washed sand, with slight recurves at each end. It is fronted by shore transverse sand ridges and intervening seagrass meadows extending up to 200 m offshore and backed by dense mangroves extending more than 1 km to the south.
