Horse Head Rock is believed to be approximately 500 million years old and is among the oldest rocks in NSW. Barely known beyond the Sapphire Coast until recent times, this majestic rock formation is a mecca for photographers and nature lovers alike.

Its sheer size and the unspoilt location is breathtaking. Horse Head Rock’s distinctive shape is best viewed from the viewing platform, accessed along the 1.5km one-way elevated walking track between Camel Rock and Murunna Point.

If you set out around the rocks from Camel Rock Surf Beach, be aware it is only accessible during low tide and calm seas and can be difficult climbing.

Parking is available at Camel Rock Beach car park, found along the unmarked road off Wallaga Lake Rd.

If walking from Murunna Point, parking is available at Wallaga Lake Reserve along Wallaga St.
