The Parker River flows through steep, forested slopes to enter the coast in a 200 m deep bay, with just a 50 m wide entrance between two 50 m high headlands. The river and waves have built a 100 m long beach inside the bay, with a small, low, sand barrier and estuary behind the beach. The bay is shallow, with a bar and permanent rip occupying the area between the beach and the entrance. Rock platforms line either side of the entrance. There is a parking area on the southern slopes above the bay, with a walking track down to the partially cleared flats behind the beach.
