Voodoo Wave Power

Posted: January 25, 2013 at 7:48 am

When Captain Cook sailed around Bate Bay looking for somewhere safe to land its not surprising he chose to bypass the rocky coastline around Voodoo for the safer and more protected Kurnell just around the corner. Deep sea ocean swells unload on this part of the coast as they hit the shallow ledges producing some intense wave energy. Just North of the car park in large North East swells the ocean power is never more evident as swells collide with the rocky headland. How big is this wave explosion? The person standing there in the shot gives a rough gauge into  just how high this spray is. Photo Stroh.
