Another hotspot for Sunrise photography on Northern beaches in Sydney, NSW
Avalon Beach is a northern beach side suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. This Beach is superb for swimming, surfing windsurfing and fishing.
A 25 metre ocean rock swimming pool is located at the southern end of the beach.
Full Top View of Avalon Beach can be easily accesible near 1-2 Surfside Ave carpark.
For Sunrise lovers there are few spots around which has their own uniqueness.
Spot 1 : 1-2 Surfside Ave - park your car at street and yourself will notice their is protection railing around cliff edge and nice green grass.
Their is little rock edge where you can set up your camera tripod, Be careful, definitely a Big No for kids. From this spot you will have a 270 degree view of landscape seeing beach view, Avalon head land and sea view.
Ideal spot for panoramic photography.
Spot 2 : Just before Avalon Rock Pool walk path you will notice rocks on left side on beach and little cave on right side. Try to take photos from inside of this little cave. You can explore nice composition with rocks in foreground and full beach view at background. Low tides gives nice rock platform for photography.
Spot 3 : No Doubt Avalon Rock pool in itself. if you not feeling to take photos take a dip in 25 metre ocean rock pool.
Spot 4 : South end of rock pool, yourself will find little access to rocks. Walk carefully on rocks as they may be slippery.
This is best spot I have found for taking Sunrise landscape photos with waves and sun rising in front of you.
Try to access these rocks during low tides only.
Parking : There is enough park ing spots on 1-2 Surfside Ave or around Avalon Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
