Wellington Point is visible from the foreshores of Wynnum and Manly. On a clear day at low tide you can see King Island - still attached by a spit of sand which becomes a popular walking trail before the tide changes and comes over the spit.
On one side of Wellington Point is the jetty and boat ramp - both popular. The jetty for those who want to fish and have no boat, and boat ramp is the setting of point for all sorts of small boats. In the distance is North Stradbroke Island and on any good day the white sails of yachts can be seen plying this very busy recreational waterway.
