Point Gellibrand is a low, basaltic point in lee of which is a narrow, high tide, sand beach fronted by basalt boulders and sand flats. A road parallels the back of the 500 m long, crenulate beach, and historic Fort Gellibrand occupies the backing point.
The beach faces south-east and consequently (coupled with the point and rocks) receives very low waves. As a result, there are sand flats amongst the rocks.
