South of Kellys Beach, the coast trends roughly due south for 10 km to Elliott Heads, at the mouth of the Elliott River. Most of the shoreline consists of low basalt bluffs and boulders, with only four small pockets of sand.Innes Park is a residential area located on a low, protruding, rocky section of coast, with two small beaches to either side. The northern beach (1506) is 400 m long and has a high tide sand beach fronted by a mixture of sand and boulders at low tide. There is good road access at the southern end, with a small foredune behind the beach and a now stable sand blow at the northern end. The southern Innes Park beach (1507) straddles a small creek mouth. It is 400 m long and consists of a narrow strip of high tide sand fronted by a continuous, sloping boulder field, with some sand in the small creek mouth. The beach is backed by a casuarina-covered foredune and a small park and car park toward its northern end.

Swimming

All four beaches are only suitable for swimming toward high tide, with low tide generally revealing a rocky shoreline.

Surfing

There are various reef breaks along this coast, which need to be checked out with the locals.

Fishing

Good rock fishing the length of the coast, as well as in the small creek at Innes Park.

General

An essentially basalt boulder coast, with enough sand to provide some high tide beach access.
