Pay Attention Boys
Photograph - Digital Art
Pay attention boys is a beautiful full colour photograph presented by Josephine Caruana of Jo. C. Photography who has a personal website at http://josephine-caruana.artistwebsites.com/
This photo by Josephine Caruana was taken at the one of the many beaches and rock pools located in around Collins Rock NSW.
A narrow coastal plain falls quickly to the Pacific coast in the east. The escarpment is heavily forested and Woonona has a patrolled beach and a promontory with significant rock shelf, Collins Rocks. This houses a salt-water-pumped, 50-metre swimming pool. The remnants of the old tidal pool (100 yards long) on this rock platform are still visible. The Wollongong to Thirroul Bike Track goes along the beachside park. Like many parts of Australia, the Woonona area was originally given over to settlers in the form of land grants. Prior to this cedar cutters worked the steep fertile soil.
The present day site was the first attempted landing in Australia by Captain James Cook on 28 April 1770. His party, desperately short of drinking water, saw the estuary of Collins Creek as a suitable place in which to replenish their required stocks. However breaking surf prevented their landing party from getting ashore. A small plaque, erected at Collins Rocks Headland in 1970, commemorates this event.
