Adventure and a rock pool fit for a king
Exploring beaches during summer unveils some hidden treasures, this one in particular serves as a cliff diving stage and rock pool. It is truly amazing how nature moulds a place like this. Situated in Blairgowrie in the Mornington Peninsula, this summer cool spot offers you a rock pool that would put any 5 star hotel to shame. The water contained in the pool is a beautiful shade of turquoise.
The main attraction however is the sandstone rock that towers above the rock pool known as the 'Blairgowrie Jumping Rock', and of course if there's a cliff with a deep rock pool below, what would any sane Aussie do? You guessed it, jump. Van Halen's 'Jump' would be a perfect soundtrack to encourage you in making the leap.
The rock has different levels to jump from. You can start with the first level and make your way up. As always do take care when you do this. HOW TO GET THERE: When heading towards the Mornington Peninsula on Melbourne Road, turn left in St John Woods Road and head all the way down. From the parking lot make your way to Bridgewater Bay.
NOTE: Take some snorkelling gear. And heaps of sunscreen.
Not to wrap everyone in cotton wool but there have been a few people in recent weeks taken to hospital after jumping of the rocks at The Pillars in Mt Martha. The peninsula beaches and cliff tops are spectacular but dangerous when jumping off them. Keep safe and enjoy.
I dove of this rock years ago when i had guts....now i'd like to think i'd at least awkwardly jump! It's safe., even for clumsy, accident prone me! I just want to know if you can take your furchild? He comes everywhere with us and on a nice long drive like this, we wouldn't leave him home...
