Disaster Bay is located on the southern side of Cornambie Point. The open, east-facing 7 km wide bay contains a slightly curving 6 km long low energy beach (K 149), fringed by mangroves at either end. A small creek crosses the northern section of the beach, with a central low red bluff section and a second creek forming the southern boundary. Sand to mud and scattered rock flats extend from 1 km in the north to 3 km off the beach in the south. The Disaster Bay community of about six houses is located in the higher central bluff section, and connected by 4WD track to the Lombadina road.
