Beach T 917 is located to the lee of Black Rocks and consists of a series of scattered reefs and small islets extending 500 m offshore. It is a curving 150 m long low energy beach tied to low rocky points at either end. The reefs lower waves to less than 1 m at the shore with a high tide reflective beach fronted by shallow rocks and reefs.
The three beaches are backed by generally well vegetated transgressive dunes that widen from 600 m in the south to 1.5 km in the north, rising up to 55 m in elevation. The dunes have disrupted the backing drainage forming some small lakes, with only Woodside Creek reaching the shore in the centre of beach T 916. The beach is accessible by 4WD along the shore, with the track in some places using the grassy foredune.
