The south east exit track to 2nd Surf Beach and Cape Paterson bisects this area and it is a wonderful location to observe many small bird species, freshwater birds, amphibians, antechinus, wombat, kangaroo and wallaby. Koala have been heard in remnant Coast Manna Gum in the bordering section of the coastal reserve.

The sector is a mix of sand, damp and wet heathland revegetation. The remnant vegetation comprises coast banksia woodland, swamp scrub and brackish wetland. A drainage line bisects the sector from the south east wetland flowing into the natural wetland near the south east exit of the estate. This drainage line has been revegetated with swamp scrub, brackish swamp scrub and damp/wet heathland species.
