Mount Mambray and Mount Gullett are two small isolated conical hills, 20 and 40 m high respectively, located on an otherwise flat 2 km wide coastal plain, dominated by salt and sand flats. Mount Mambray lies on the southern side of Mambray Creek, an upland creek that also drains the salt flats. Mount Mambray beach (556) extends south for 13.3 km south of the mount and creek mouth, terminating at a mangrove woodland. The very low energy beach consists of a series of low beach ridges, fronted by 1500 m wide sand flats. The more crenulate 8.4 km long Mount Gullett beach (557) begins on the north side of the creek mouth, and terminates in the mangroves of Yatala Harbour. The sand flats widen from 2 km to 4 km off the northern end. Both beaches can be accessed by vehicle tracks off the highway, which runs, between 3 and 6 km to the east.
