Camel Rock Beach is located on the picturesque Sapphire Coast of New South Wales, approximately 5 hours from Sydney CBD, 3 hours from Canberra and around 8 hours from Melbourne CBD, and it is definitely a must visit when passing by on a road trip.
The area is composed of 450 million year old metamorphic rocks that have been eroded to form 30 metre sea cliffs that are fronted with rocks, reefs and sea stacks, including the one in a shape of a camel! Camel Rock is one of the oldest rock formations in New South Wales and was created by undersea avalanches with rumble down continental slops!
The striking rock formation was identified and named by Bass and Flinders during the first mapping of coastline of the colony of New South Wales and today is a popular attraction by both locals and visitors alike.
The large distinctive rock formation can be seen from the bushlands, making it a spectacular sight!
Take the walking track just before the viewing platform to Murunna Point, which is a significant Aboriginal place which overlooks the Wallaga Lake where it opens to the sea. There are other walking tracks that offer appealing views as well as leading to the mouth of Wallaga Lake and some offering different perspectives of Camel Rock.
The lush bushland and cliffs surrounds the beach and camel rock...
Camel Rock Beach is a wonderful little piece of the picturesque Bermagui region as well as the outcrop itself being quite rewarding. This certainly makes the perfect day trip and a wonderful day out in nature, enjoying the great outdoors!
