Sydney Rock Pools – Virtual Tour

Over a couple of stunning winters days in Sydney last year I shot more than 170 virtual tours from Palm beach in the far north of Sydney to Maroubra beach in the south.  In the process I visited a LOT of amazing Sydney Rock Pools, which are featured here for your viewing pleasure. [Note: Rock Pools are also known as Sea Baths & Ocean Pools]

I’ve covered less than 1/2 of the Rock Pools in Sydney, next time I’m there I plan to shoot many more, eventually having virtual tours of every Rock Pool.

If you’re in Sydney with a car, a fantastic day can be had driving all the way to the top of the Sydney coastline at Palm Beach / Barrenjoey Headland, then heading south, stopping at every beach and rocky headland you come across. The Sydney coastline is diverse and beautiful, along with its inhabitants and structures.

G’day Ken, I’ve updated our maps & the title above to reflect the correct name for North Narrabeen Rock Pool. Thanks for the info.

Talking about cold, the morning I shot Mona Vale Rock Pool (top virtual tour above) was absolutely freezing. With a jumper and jacket on I was still shivering. Yet as you can see in the virtual tour there are people in swimmers about to enter the water. AMAZING stuff :)

Much appreciated, Aaron Spence.

Stunning photos – congratulations. Just one minor correction – the pool you have listed as ‘Warriewood Rock Pool’ is actually North Narrabeen – there is no rock pool at Warriewood Beach.

I know it well because I learnt to swim in those cold, dark waters!

Keep up the great work…
