Horse Head Rock

Natural Attractions

Once you glimpse Horse Head Rock, you’ll immediately understand how it came by its name. This distinctive rock formation off the Sapphire Coast near Bermagui not only resembles the neck of a graceful pony but is also historically significant – at more than 500 million years old, it’s one of NSW’s most ancient rock edifices.

The attraction is best viewed from the lookout platform accessed along the 1.5 kilometre one-way elevated walking track between Camel Rock and Murunna Point. If you set out around the rocks from Camel Rock Surf Beach, keep in mind it is only accessible during low tide and calm seas and climbing can be difficult.
