The Murray Mouth produces a small but significant break in the long Coorong beach. On the north side of the mouth is an 11 km long beach and dune system backed by the Goolwa channel, and known as the Sir Richard Peninsula. The town of Goolwa is located at the western end of the channel. Goolwa beach (149A) begins at the mouth and runs for 11 km to Goolwa Beach then another 6 km as Surfers (149B) and Middleton beaches (149C), where it is backed by 10 m high bluffs. The beach finally terminating against the rocks of Middleton Point. But for Murray Mouth (which occasionally closes) the entire beach system from Cape Jaffa to Middleton is 194 km in length.
