Bogey Hole, Newcastle NSW
About Bogey Hole, Newcastle NSW
What better place to enjoy a dip than The Bogey Hole? Located at the foot of Shepherd’s Hill, this spot was once known as “sheep pasturage hill". Geologically speaking it consists mostly of sandstone/conglomerate rocks typical for coastal areas near Newcastle where much history has been made possible because they are so rich with natural resources. It stands out among other historic places due to its use early on by settlers who sought relief from harsh conditions while also playing an important role throughout NSW's development into what we know today - potential national significance if there ever were one!
The story of how the Bogey Hole came to be is as old and intriguing, if not more so than its location. A wave-cut rock platform hand-hewn by convicts for Major James Morisset in 1819 now stands high above what was once just another natural pool used by Aboriginal people before them - but who knows? What really matters at this point though are those memories you can take away from your visit or experience here today!
