Newcastle NSW Australia by Gerard Breislin

Newcastle NSW Australia

The Bogey Hole, an icon of Newcastle in NSW, Australia, was hand-hewn out of a wave cut rock platform by convicts for Major James Morisset, in 1819 for his personal use. Potentially the place has national significance as the earliest known example in the whole of Australia of a purpose-built ocean swimming pool. The Bogey Hole is listed on the NSW State Heritage Register in recognition of its importance in the course of NSW's history.
