Hillock Point is the most easterly tip of Hinchinbrook Island. It was sighted and named ‘on account of its figure’ by Captain Cook in June 1770. Between Zoe Bay and Hillock Point is 5 km of steep, rocky coast containing three small beaches. The largest is Beach 819, a 150 m long, north-east facing pocket of high tide boulders, fronted by a high and low tide sand beach, and backed by steeply rising, vegetated slopes. The beach receives waves averaging about 0.5 m and is 10 m wide at high tide, while exposing a 50 m wide bar at low tide.

Swimming

Only beach 820 is suitable for swimming, owing to the dominance of boulders and rocks at beaches 820 and 821.

Surfing

Usually none.

Fishing

All three offer good access to rocks and rock reef.

General

Three pockets of sand and boulders that are mainly viewed by passing boat fishers.
