Rapid Creek separates the suburb of Rapid Creek from the Dripstone Caves, with a 100 m long footbridge across the creek linking the two. Between the creek and the caves is a 1.2 km long northwest-facing beach (NT 145). The beach has a continuous high tide beach, fronted at the western end by the 1.5 km wide creek tidal shoals, which narrow to 1 km in the east. The beach is backed by a 5-10 m high grassy foredune, then a large gravel car park, and further back the Casuarina campus of the Northern Territory University. The caves are located at the base of 10 m high weathered sandstone bluffs which form the eastern boundary of the beach.Limited parking but good picnic area, water taps, free bbqs although no view of beach from the park.
