A lovely section of a lovely coastline. The views are accessible to all, and if you are sure of foot you can climb down to the rock pools. (There are no signs saying you can't but there's no defined track either.) The geology is fascinating....More

Cathedral Rocks is an interesting volcanic rock formation situated 3km out of town at the southern end of Jones Beach. The rocks make a good photo opportunity with the changing light of the day.

After driving around and asking people we neede to follow the sign 'blowhole' as the rock is not mentioned. After findin the lava outcrop we realised (saw) why it is not a mayor attraction. Not worth spending 15 minutes trying to find it.

Located at the southern end of Jones Beach. Easy to walk to the rocky outcrops. It is easier at low tide. We spent a while photographing the rocks from many angles. There is a cave but we did not venture in the cave.

Gorgeous spot with turquoise water and green, lush grass. Just a short drive from Wollongong - paradise at our doorstep!

You will be attracted by the different looks of rocks. Very relaxing, just sit down to watch the waves or to take some stunning shots of the ocean.

Good spot to take photos, or just have a picnic and take in the views. Do not be tempted to climb down to the rocks nearby, the seas in this area can be treacherous.

At first we didn’t know how to get there. We went the other side and it was easier to go down. There were so many rocks, especially black rocks. We explored the rocks. We had to keep an eye on the tide, as it was...More

Don't come to late in the day as the sun will be behind the hill and you won't have the rocks illuminated. Also try for low tide if you're keen to get inside the cave for that unique view.
