Point Cartwright

Landmarks and Buildings

Point Cartwright is an un-patrolled beach, situated at the base of the headland at the very northern end of Kawana beach. It’s popular for its surfing point break. High cliffs in the coastal headland reserve provide spectacular views of Mooloolaba, the Mooloolah River mouth, Mount Coolum to the north and Kawana Beach to the south. It’s often possible to spot migratory humpback whales and turtles as well as ships entering and leaving the Port of Brisbane with the views to the east.

Grassy slopes provide excellent locations for family picnics and toilet facilities are available at the Pacific Boulevard entrance to the reserve.

La Balsa Park, at the end of Harbour Drive and on the edge of the Mooloolah River is the perfect place for the kids to play and the adults to sit and watch the world around them.

Many visitors and residents enjoy fishing from the banks of the Mooloolah River or the bund wall which are accessible from the Harbour Drive entrance and the reserve.
