My View from the Clifftop

I stood at the clifftop near the end of the cemetery to view the rocks. When you are facing the cemetery from the road, it's straight ahead.

It's high up on the cliff, so there's no access there down to Narooma Beach. This is where I have taken my photography behind the fence.

According to the locals, you can get down to Narooma Beach from near the cemetery. Off to the right of the building, you'll find a white picket fence with a trail to get to the beach.

However, it's difficult and not suitable for everyone. Visit NSW gives details on how to get down to the beach.

Be extremely careful because they warn it's not signposted. It's not suitable for children, the elderly, and mobility-impaired people.

Glasshouse Rocks

Glasshouse Rocks is an amazing set of rock formations in Narooma overlooking the Tasman Sea. I was attracted to them for their photography qualities. Then, they drew me in for their wonder and formation.

The rocks are made of Narooma Chert. It took about 50 million years to form the geological structure. And they were formed somewhere between 510 and 440 million years ago.

Named for their distinctive glass-like formation, the beach and rocks provide a mesmerizing natural landscape perfect for a calming stroll or an awe-inspiring picnic spot. So, pack a picnic for lunch.

From the shore, you can see Montague Island in the distance where you can go on a seals and dolphins tour.

You can spot some local wildlife such as lizards, birds, and kangaroos!

Pillow Lava

Nearby on the beach is the Pillow Lava made of the lava flow of a submarine volcano.

You’ll surely remember your visit to see Glasshouse Rocks as I do.

  16. What a great place. Looked like you had it all to yourself. Is that normal?

    Reply
    • Thank you Cindy. During the summer months, that’s when the beach is patrolled. There were some surfers at the beach, too. It was the beginning of spring. Plus, it wasn’t school holidays. So, it’s probably normal for then.
