Bombo Quarry Experience at Kiama NSW Australia

 

Experience Bombo Quarry at Bombo, Kiama, Australia.

 

Bombo Quarry is what Bombo Headland Quarry is known as. It's now a closed quarry.

 

I turned left instead of going under the bridge. And, I ended up at Robert East Reserve. The view from the stone fence looked out over Storm Bay.

 

The Walk

After parking the car near the toilet block. From here, the view is over Bombo Beach. Then, off I went and walked up the track to  Bombo Headland Quarry.

As you will hear in the video below, it was a windy day. And, the walk took me longer than expected.

 

Bombo Quarry

The geological structure of Bombo Quarry is a mixture of black grey rock and red brown sandstone. The columns are made of black grey Bombo latite.

 

At Bombo Quarry, I didn't venture too far as there were boulders, rocks, and rock pools. And, I didn't want to stand too close to the edge.

 

BE CAREFUL AROUND ROCKS AND WATER.

 

I'd read about the unexpected waves coming in which could leave you and your equipment wet.

 

The photography opportunities would be better on a cloudy day, the hour before sunset, or the hour after sunrise.

As I had a bright sunny start of spring day. I made the best of the opportunity to be there. And, experience Bombo Quarry.

Australian Photography gives some tips for photography at Bombo Quarry.

 

Video of Bombo Quarry

Watch the video of Bombo Quarry to experience. Can you imagine what it would be like when the South Pacific Ocean wasn't calm.

 

Bombo Beach

On the way back to the car, you can catch a glimpse of Bombo Beach.
