Black Rock is a low basalt point, one of four such points between here and Noble Rocks 3 km to the south-west. The Torquay Road takes a right hand turn at the end of Thirteenth Beach, to bypass the Geelong Sewer Works, the effluent from which is discharged at Black Rock.
The beach itself is a narrow strip of sand, bordered and fronted by basalt rocks and boulders. Waves break over the boulders and only reach the beach at high tide.
