Point Sinclair is a 40 m high dune and calcarenite capped granite headland that has small beaches to either side (Fig. 4.185). On the east is the curving southeast facing, protected 650 m long Port Le Hunte beach (1325). The gravel road from Penong terminated on the 30 m high bluffs overlooking Port Le Hunte. A vehicle track leads down to the jetty, where there is a small informal camping area between the bluffs and a seawall. The low energy beach runs northeast from the jetty, with intertidal rock flats fronting the eastern half. There is a toilet block and fresh water at the jetty, but no other facilities. The 200 m jetty is no longer used to ship wheat, and a shark net has been strung along the jetty and back to the beach to provide a shark proof swimming enclosure. This is required as there have been shark attacks at the beach and at adjoining Cactus, the most recent fatal attack in 2000. The beach is usually calm, with a high tide beach and a narrow bar, then deeper water. During summer fishers launch their boats from the beach and moor them just off the beach.
