Australia Lurline Bay, Sydney, Australia
- Please to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Surprising little seafront pocket! Lurline Bay is a secluded rocky basin, exposed to the open waters of the Pacific Ocean. Take a seat on the fallen rocks, explore the myriad rock pools and enjoy the spectacular views. In the winter months Humpback and Southern Right whales are visible from the cliffs as they make their annual journey northward to warmer waters, they return journey begins in September and October.
There are lots of composition options at Lurline Bay. I mainly shoot around a nice rocky inlet that you can choose to frame dead centre or off the right to capture sunrise and emphasise the curvature of the inlet. I shoot rather low when I am at this spot as there tends to be colourful green moss and interesting foreground detail in the rocks. If you go after rain there are usually additional rock pools that you can shoot also for something a little different.
Lurline Bay is situated between Coogee and Maroubra. Contrary to popular belief this little gem can be accessed without having to travel via the coastal walk. The easiest way to access the location is to park at the end of Seaside Parade and then walk down the set of stairs near the end of the street. Lots of street parking available also.
