Glasshouse Canvas || NAROOMA

Surf Beach, Narooma has two sites of geological significance and beauty at either end of the sandy beach, which is approximately 1km in length and looks out to Montague Island. At the southern end lie the imposing Glasshouse Rocks – which are possibly the most photographed rocks along the Eurobodalla coastline and have been recognised (as what?) by the geological sites and monuments subcommittee of the Geological Society of Australia. The Glasshouse Rocks are Narooma Chert, which is a mix of sedimentary chert and shale, and are part of the Cambrian/Ordovician Wagonga Group, dating between 510-440 million years old.
