Spring Beach (T 268) is located 3 km southeast of Orford and to the south of 10 m high Quarry Point. The straight 1 km long beach faces east across Mercury Passage to Maria Island 11 km to the east, and receives southerly waves moving up the passage. The waves average about 1 m and maintain a moderate gradient beach and low tide terrace, with rips forming during periods of higher waves. A narrow foredune and coastal reserve back the beach with a cluster of houses behind the centre and the Rheban Road running behind the southern half of the beach. Two Mile Creek crosses towards the southern end of the beach, with a 30 m high headland to the south covered with several houses.
