About Bogey Hole
The Bogey Hole is an Instagrammer's dream and a 'must see' attraction on the Newcastle coastline. impressive at full flight, or in a moment of calm take time to enjoy this beautiful rock pool next time you are visiting King Edward Park!
The Bogey Hole is situated at the foot of Shepherd's Hill, or as it was known in the 1820’s "sheep pasturage hill". Geologically speaking this rock formation consists mostly out sandstone/conglomerate typical to coastal areas where Newcastle was built upon. It has been listed on NSW State Heritage Register for its importance during different stages within our history; potentially making The Bogahole an example that might be found across Australia since they are one-of-kind - having had their construction date dating back before any other pools were built elsewhere throughout all levels there countrywide!
What to do at Bogey Hole
The Bogey Hole is a fascinating natural wonder that will stop you in your tracks the first time you lay eyes on it. The stairs leading down to this swimming hole are located nearby, and they provide an amazing view as waves crash against nearby cliffs before washing around inside where people can enjoy their swims!
The new, safety-conscious stairs are a far cry from the old ones that became mossy and slippery. They lead down to an easy-to use swimming platform with great visibility of water depth at all times!
swimming in the Newcastle Bogey Hole is a unique and memorable experience, particularly when waves are washing across. You feel like you're swimming inside of an open-air pool due to its size and shape; but then those crashing nearby remind us that we cannot get too comfortable here since this would be exactly where they leave their mark on our skin (literally). The bottom was designed with smoothness similar to those found on pieces of slate or marble - which makes sense considering all these materials come from minerals deep underwater!
