Connellys Bay is a 1 km wide southwest-facing bay bordered by Dorman Point in the west and the lower slopes of 180 m high Thornes Hills to the west. Beach T 386 faces southwest out of the bay and extends for 950 m between the two bedrock highs. This is a more exposed beach with a 15 m wide high tide beach and 200 m wide ridged sand flats backed by a 5 m high foredune. A row of beachfront homes back the small foredune and occupy the 100 m wide barrier. The barrier is backed by Connellys Marsh, which feeds into Connellys Creek and drains across the southern end of the beach. Houses also spread for 1 km along the western slopes of the bay.
