Artist's Description

This is the second and closer shot in The Bogey Hole series. This pool is quite large and difficult to capture in its entirety because of the cliff face one one side and the ocean on the other. The steps to the pool are always wet, steep and covered in moss.

The Bogey Hole is a rock pool just south of Newcastle Beach. In the past it was also known as the Commandant’s Bath. This huge hole was carved in the rock cliff at the edge of the ocean by convict labour for the private use of Major James Morisset who was the commandant of the convict settlement between 1819-22. It was later opened to public use in 1863. Today the road above is closed to vehicular traffic because of unstable cliff faces although a motor hillclimb race is held each year during the Newcastle Mattara Festival. It is an easy walk though to the Bogey hole from King Edward Park or the look out above.
