Ignimbrite Rocks - Boat Harbour by onewing

Ignimbrite Rocks - Boat Harbour

Following on from yesterdays photo, we are still at Boat Harbour but now we have walked through bushland along the coastal paths to the headland.

The ignimbrite rocks in this area are 350 million years old.

Ignimbrite is a pumice-dominated pyroclastic flow deposit formed from the cooling of pyroclastic material ejected from an explosive volcanic eruption.

If you look to the horizon you will see the sand dunes at my favourite beach, Birubi, on the right of this picture. The dunes go from Birubi at Anna Bay all the way to Newcastle way off on the left of the horizon.
Very interesting, beautiful area!

Beautiful capture and great clarity. The rocky beach is my type of beach - cleaner without all the sand which will take hours to remove from the body, the cloths, the beach bags ect,, not mentioning the car if you drive there.

Such inviting rocks to jump on there! Used to love rocks like this in my youth on holiday in the highlands....sadly not much jumping on rocks these days for me. Love that blue water in between the rocks! Harry’s sort of beach without sand! Fave!
