Artist's Description

The Bogey Hole is a popular swimming spot at the foot of Shepherds Hill, beneath King Edward Park in Newcastle.
It is located beneath a pseudo headland or prominence and gets battered in heavy seas. It is only about 4 and a half feet deep.
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”.
The Bogey Hole, Newcastle, NSW Australia.
