Between Eagle Rock and Table Rock at the mouth of Aireys Inlet, the coast is composed of 20 to 30 m high bluffs, fronted by rock platforms, reefs and sea stacks. In amongst the rocks are four small beaches, only the first of which (324) is accessible.Table Rock forms the main headland and is the site of the lighthouse. On its southern side is a 200 m long, south facing beach that ends at the mouth of Aireys Inlet. Rocks outcrop on the beach and reefs lie offshore.

Swimming

These are all hazardous beaches, with only Beach 324 providing access and moderately safe conditions during low waves. The three Rock Beaches should be avoided, as they are difficult to access and are dominated by rocks, reefs and rips.

Surfing

There are a number of reef breaks along this section that are usually better at high tide.

Fishing

If you do not mind rock hopping, there are several permanent holes and gutters off the beach and in the rocks and reefs along the base of the bluffs. However be careful, as the rocks are awash at high tide and during larger swell.

General

Four beaches to view from the lighthouse and bluff-top walking track, but not recommended for anything other than fishing. The lighthouse was built in 1891 and stands 60 m above sea level. It features in the children's television series 'Around The Twist'.
