On a trip down the south coast of New South Wales, we called into Bawley Point for a lunch-time stop. Finding a picnic table in a shaded area with a view of the ocean was a bonus.
Bawley Point is located halfway between Ulladulla and Batemans Bay on the New South Wales south coast. The area has beautiful beaches and is surrounded by national parks.
The Bawley Point gantry, one of the last remnants of the local timber mill (which burnt down in 1922), was washed away by storms caused by a destructive East Coast low in 2016.

- The gantry, which was used as a fishing platform by the locals has been rebuilt.
