"Amazing Cliffs and coastal walk"

POINT ARKWRIGHT OVERVIEW
Point Arkwright features a coastal headland with views stretching north to Sunshine Beach and Point Cartwright to the South. The numerous viewing platforms are great for spotting turtles or watching the annual Humpback whale migration.

POINT ARKWRIGHT HISTORY
It’s thought to be named in honour of Sir Richard Arkwright, the inventor of the modern cotton spinning factory system and machinery. Although, just who bestowed this name is not known as it was obviously intended to be grouped with Point Cartwright, which was named after Edmund Cartwright who developed weaving and combing equipment which compliment Arkwright's inventions.

POINT ARKWRIGHT REAL ESTATE
The area features a few medium density developments nestled into the hills with ocean and rainforest views.
