Bogey Hole

Take a dip in the Bogey Hole, which was cut into ocean rocks by convict labour in 1819. You will realise the convicts amazing achievement when you see the waves crashing into the pool.

The Bogey Hole was constructed by order of Commandant Morisset in about 1820 for his own personal use. Morisset was Commandant of Newcastle from 1819 to 1822. It was known, originally as the Commandants Baths. The name Bogey Hole was applied afterwards and comes from the Indigenous word meaning to bathe.

The Bogey Hole remains a popular spot today, particularly for inner city dwellers who don't like getting sand in their shoes, and still becomes very crowded on warm summer days.
