Information

Point Cartwright stands at the end of a short peninsula that forms the Eastern bank of the Mooloolaba River. At its highest point is a light house, a modern structure, that protects this area of the coast and marks the entrance to the river located a few hundred metres to the west.

Suburbia extends to the lighthouse reserve with high rise apartment blocks overlooking the car park from which a short paved path leads to the lighthouse. Expansive views, both north and south, are available from the vantage point of the summit as are ships waiting to enter Moreton Bay that can normally be seen anchored towards the horizon. There is a good view of the river mouth and the main commercial and holiday area of Mooloolaba.

The streets leading to the point provide access to the river and to surfing and bathing beaches, as well as to the residential areas.
