Bogey Hole Pool Sunset || NEWCASTLE ||

The Bogey Hole is a popular swimming spot in Newcastle, located beneath a headland and providing a spectacular vantage point to view the ocean.

 

A surviving example of construction from the days of the earliest European settlement in Newcastle, the Bogey Hole is a convict-built baths hewn out of a rock face for the personal use of Major James Morisset, a notable military figure from the early period of European settlement in Australia.

 

Built in 1819, this place is the first recorded European purpose-built ocean pool on the NSW coast
