Cartwright Point is a protruding rocky point located immediately south of Cartwright Creek. Beach T 459 extends south of the sloping 20 m high point as a 200 m long strip of high tide sand and rocks. The narrow eroding beach is backed by vegetated bluffs that rise to 20 m in the south, with blufftop houses behind. There is public access via some steps at the northern end of the beach.
The suburb of Taroona lies 1 km south of Cartwright Point and has 2 km of bluff-backed shoreline containing five narrow generally rock-dominated beaches. Beaches T 460-462 are located either side of Taroona High School (Fig 4.80).
