The main beach ends in the south at the small Barwell Creek, beyond which the beach (1362) continues on for 2.6 km to the low rock of Spring Head. This beach is backed by rising land toward the head and the northern suburbs of Yeppoon. The main road parallels the back of most of this beach, with a foreshore reserve and caravan park located between the road and the beach.
The beaches are composed of fine sand and exposed to waves averaging 0.8 m. These factors maintain a low, narrow high tide beach fronted by a 200 m wide, low gradient low tide beach. Waves spill across the low gradient bar at all stages of the tide, and rips are usually absent.
Beach Length: 2.6km
