Jimmy Newhills Harbour (WA 416) is a 500 m deep cleft in the 100-150 m high calcarenite capped-granite, with boulders dominating the more protected inner shoreline, where waves average less than 1 m. While the boulders dominate the shore there is some low tide sand amongst the boulders at the apex of the bay. A clifftop car park is located above the western side of the harbour with a steep descent down to the shore. It is used by fishers and surfers who ride a peaky righthand surf break off the western harbour entrance. Black Head is located 1 km west of the harbour and is a 100 m high calcarenite-capped, granite headland. The headland is the site of the Blowholes and a road runs out to the tip of the head, with a walking track down to the holes.
