This cliff is what they call “The Gap” which is a very popular tourist destination both for local and foreign in Watson Bay, Sydney.
Watsons Bay is located on the southern head of the entrance to Sydney Harbour. To the east is the Tasman Sea and to the west is the Harbour with a glorious view of the city of Sydney in the distance.
It is a beautiful place that attracts visitors but it is also a place that records numbers of suicide. When we came here last year the gap has a long line of fence at breast height and various cameras around it were installed. When we were about to leave the place, a busload of tourists were disembarking and were focusing their eyes to the gap.
The gap has a great geology and obviously it was formed through the constant erosion of the rock’s face exposed to the strong waves of the sea below forming the cliff as we see it today. Tessellated basalt rock platforms lie at the base of the cliff.
