North Point is a 20 m high dune-capped calcarenite bluff that forms the northern tip of Rottnest Island and the western boundary of 600 m wide Parakeet Bay. Within the northeast-facing bay are two low energy beaches (RI 1 & 2). Parakeet Bay beach (RI 1) curves gently for 300 m between 20 m high bluffs. It is steep reflective beach fronted by patchy seagrass over a sand seafloor and backed by a scarped 10-20 m high foredune, with a small blowout at the eastern end. A car park is located behind the centre of the foredune.
