Greenmount gets its name for the green mount that we still can see between the pines and the buildings. 
While the beach faces north and is partially protected by Point Danger from the prevailing southerly swell, it remains a very dynamic beach. This is as a result of large pulses of sand that move from New South Wales across the Tweed River mouth and around Point Danger. They manifest themselves as large sand waves moving slowly around Greenmount over a period of weeks to months. 
Thought I share some meaningful info from time to time... 😎
