The Black and Bohle Rivers are two small rivers that enter the southern end of Halifax Bay. Lying toward the southern, more protected end of the bay, they receive low waves and have mangroves growing along parts of their shores. Black River is bordered by settlements on either side, with a road on its southern side running 7 km out to a growing coastal settlement that parallels the first kilometre of the beach. There is a second access road midway down the beach, and a vehicle track to the mouth of the Bohle River and Bohle River Beach.
The Bohle River Beach is a 700 m long, low strip of north facing sand, situated on the eastern side of the river mouth. There is a 4WD track to the beach that is fringed by mangroves at each end and fronted by 1.5 km wide sand and mud flats.
