Point Walter is notable for the sandbar or spit that extends over 1 kilometre (0.6 mi) into the river, which is often submerged at high tide.
The local Aboriginals believe the sandbar was the hair of the Dreamtime figure Djunda (alternatively spelt Junda), the Charnok woman, and the nearby cliffs at Blackwall Reach were her footprints. Djunda is said to have carried spirit children in her hair, who, when they fell out, formed rocks. (1)
