Day Two of our Sapphire Coast road trip along the South Coast of NSW took us from Glasshouse Rocks, Narooma to Eden.
After doing three abandoned locations the day before, we were now up early to catch a sunrise at the Glass House Rocks in Narooma.
The Narooma surf beach is beautiful, a one km long, semi circular cove, overlooking Montague Island, with the Glass House Rocks at the southern end, and Australia Rock at the northern. The Glasshouse Rocks are recognised by the Geological Society of Australia as being between 510 and 440 million years old and are the result of volcanic activity, hundreds of millions of years ago. Unfortunately we got so involved with admiring the sunrise we never walked over to see the Glasshouse Rocks up close 🙁
Our ‘plan’ we had been to was to go out to Montague Island after breakfast, but none of the tours were running that day due to heavy seas out on the ‘bar’, so after breakfast overlooking the beach wandered down to Australia Rock before heading off towards Eden.
Leaving Narooma we headed down the Princes Highway to Bermagui and Camel Rock.
Second part of the plan that didn’t go as planned was that by now, Horsehead Rock was inaccessible due to no longer being low tide. Horsehead Rock is past Camel Rock, across a short rocky beach that is only accessible at low tide. So scratch Horsehead Rock this trip.
Camel Rock is ten minutes north of Bermagui along Wallaga Lake Road. The surf and rock formations are fabulous, I could have stayed there all day.
Also in Bermagui is the Blue Pool. A large rock pool at the base of a dramatic cliff. There are actually two pools there.. one seems full all the time, and the other is fed by the first pool as the tide comes in. Something we didnt realise until the water came gushing over the lip as we stood in the empty pool photographing the full pool!
Last stop before Eden was Wallaga Lake. We were driving past and spotted some Pelicans and Pied Cormorants on the sandbar so pulled in for some shots.
They were probably bout 100ft from shore.. but my travelling friend got out her ‘big boy’ and we got them just fine 🙂
