Wattamolla Looking West by FireflyPhotosAust Wattamolla Looking West by FireflyPhotosAust
The view looking inland at Wattamolla. Behind me was the Pacific Ocean and in front of me is the Royal National Park.

This park was established in 1879 and is the 2nd oldest National Park in the World, with the oldest being Yellowstone in the USA.

In the background you may be able to see a small waterfall.

This is a popular swimming location and during the summer you would be lucky to find anywhere to park.

Wattamolla's a great place, I can't wait to go there again sometime soon.

Oh and by the way, behind you is the Tasman Sea, not the Pacific which is past New Zealand or further northeast.

It was my first visit there for a long time and my first with no crowds.

Unfortunately not John:-(

I didn't feel like walking right around to the other side so that I could get a good composition.

Thanks Lori, I wasn't sure about them either but I was cramped in a little section about 2 foot by 2 foot with no room to move my tripod:-)
