Croome Creek forms the southern end of Moore Park Beach. Between the creek and the large Burnett River mouth, 8 km to the east, is a low lying, dynamic section of shore that is variously eroding and building out in response to migration of a large sand spit called Barubbra Island; which in turn is influenced by floodwaters and sand delivered by the Burnett River.
Clark Point is the former northern point of the river mouth, now replaced by a training wall. A 900 m long beach (1496) has developed between the low, sandy point and the wall. It is bordered by the 1 km long wall to the south and the sands of Barubbra Island to the north. The beach is a narrow strip of steep sand backed by vegetated overwash flats and mangroves. It is fronted by a shoaling bay between the wall and point.
