The northern shore of North Stradbroke Island faces essentially due north and runs for 13 km from low, sandy Amity Point to 25 m high Point Lookout, the north-east tip of the island. In between are four sandy beaches, the eastern three bordered by rocks and headlands, together with the growing town of Point Lookout, which now backs about 3 km of the north-eastern corner of the island. Deadmans beach (1584) lies on the north-eastern tip of the island, between Cylinder Head and Dune Rocks. It is also known as Home Beach. The 600 m long beach faces due north. It is backed by 20 to 30 m high vegetated bluffs, that are being covered by bluff-top housing. There is a lookout and car park on Cylinder Head and a walking track down to the centre of the beach. The beach is bordered by the points and rocky shore platforms, together with rocks in the centre. Waves averaging 1 m move around Point Lookout and, together with the sand, they move around to maintain a highly variable, 100 m wide surf zone, usually with a deep trough between the beach and outer bar/sand waves.
