Waiting for the Next Wave - Bogey Hole, Newcastle, NSW, Australia by 


Pastel on Sanded Paper
ORIGINAL SOLD

Take a dip in the Bogey Hole, which was cut into ocean rocks by convict labour in 1819. You will realise the convicts amazing achievement when you see the waves crashing into the pool.
The Bogey Hole was constructed by order of Commandant Morisset in about 1820 for his own personal use and was originally known as the “Commandant’s Baths”. Morisset was Commandant of Newcastle from 1819 to 1822. The name “Bogey Hole” was applied afterwards and comes from the Aboriginal word meaning “to bathe”.

This is still a favourite swimming spot in Newcastle and is wonderful to paint, with the contrast in colour between the pool and ocean.
