Bass and Flinders Point is located at the southern end of the peninsula, at Cronulla. The memorial is dedicated to explorers George Bass and Matthew Flinders, who explored the Port Hacking estuary. The memorial stone reads: "Memorial to Matthew Flinders, George Bass and the 'Boy Martin' who sailed past this headland in 'Tom Thumb' II on March 30th 1796 and discovered and named Port Hacking." The Esplanade, is the walkway that leads from Cronulla Beach past Shelly Beach and Oak Park, around the cliffs to this lookout. The lookout provides a view of the Port Hacking estuary, the Royal National Park and Bundeena.
