Cathedral Rocks – 3 Stunning Sunrises In A Fascinating Scenery
The almost lonely beaches between Kiama and Minnamurra Headlands – 120 km south of Sydney – offer not only a great opportunity to walk along the coast, go surfing, swimming or do BBQs. The beaches and the coastal line offer also a fascinating, awesome scenery for sunrise and sunset.
The scenery at sunrise is so energetic and breathtaking that is really worth to wake up, even if you are usually no early morning bird! I can’t imagine a better start of my day!
Sunrise at Cathedral Rocks
Cathedral Rocks are a stunning rock formation between Bombo Beach and Jones Beach very close to Kiama. I met some photographs at Cathedral Rocks who drove 80 km in the very early morning just to see this spectacular sunrise in this breathing scenery.
Definitively one of the best places to start your day with great morning appreciation :-D
Sunrise at Jones Beach
Jones’s Beach is another popular surfing beach just 5 minutes north of the Kiama township. Its a cool beach and with this light it is just the very best start of a day :-)
Bombo Quarry – Sunrise on the Moon?
Take a walk through Bombo Headland, among the unusual basalt columns – it feels like you’re on the moon! The basalt walls and columns are a legacy of blue metal quarrying in the 1880s and 1900s. At that time the basalt was an important resource, used by the growing area of Kiama to build roads and railroad tracks.
The Bombo Headland’s clusters of hexagonal basalt columns are an internationally recognized geological phenomena.
Take a look north and you will see the award winning Cathedral Rocks, Minnamurra Headland and Jones Beach. Look south and you can see an impressive view of Kiama. Bombo Headland is a great surfing beach too.
