Turrimetta Head by Dean Cunningham

Part of the Turrimetta Headland, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Taken with Canon EOS550D. EFS 18-55mm Lens.

Unlike inland Australia, the coast has an abundant natural food supply. Local Aborigines, the Guringai tribe, lived in largish groups as they didn’t need to spread out in search of food. The Guringai wandered along coastal paths in this area just as we are doing today. Their paths, however, followed nature’s calendar of available foods. When the coastal wattle flowered, for example, the Guringai knew that the mullet would be running, and it was time to go fishing.

    Great shot mate. Nice colours. The only thing I don’t like about this beach is how many people are there at sunrise. Last time I went there i swear there were like 20-30 people with their tripods and stuff down on the rocks. Crazy how popular it has got for photographers.

  • yeah you are absolutely right mate – i havent been there for sunrise but every second sunrise pic in sydney on RB is at turrimetta, thanks a lot mate !
