ROCK ART – SYDNEY
(281 viewings – 11 favourites – 15SEP 2011)
Outer North Head, Sydney Harbour, NSW Australia.
Sydney and its surrounds, from the coastal cliffs to the Blue Mountains and beyond is build on Hawkesbury sandstone, the most amazing and colourful of all rock strata. The surreal weathered shapes, textures and rich autumn colours are highlighted best at dusk and dawn, its mood changing constantly throughout the day in response to the light. Sydney wouldn’t be the same without it.

The ‘iconic’ cliffs of North Head at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Arriving into Sydney by boat is far more glamorous than arrivals through the airport, particularly when the headlands are here to welcome you.
