Sunset at Hallett Cove Conservation Park

Interested in coming out to see the view of the sea, cliffs and the conservation park? At around 17:30 the sun sets over the horizon. Great views!

Visit one of Australia's most outstanding geological and archaeological sites at the Hallett Cove Conservation Park, where more than 1,700 Aboriginal artefacts have been found. An interpretative walking trail describes the park's cultural and geological heritage, including evidence of an Australian ice age some 280 million years ago.

Meet at the Hallett Cove Boatshed for afternoon tea at 3:00pm.

      Alicia, Myself and Mengjun were interested in some portraite work. We can always start with an outdoor shoot and see how we go from there. Simon G

    Sorry. Pulling out because of the cold slippery conditions & a distinct likelihood I'd slide over a cliff - I'm limping already. Hope you all enjoy the blustery conditions.

    eek...last minute family outing. Look forward to another time.

    August 2, 2013

  • Joseph T.

    Thanks Simon and Ray for suggestions on what to bring. The weather is likely to be windy so do bring a jacket in case it gets chilly. For camera equipment, if you're wanting to do long-exposures you will probably want to take a tripod, and ND filters if you have them.

    August 2, 2013

  • Ray W

    Can I also suggest a tripod for those who want good sunset shots at a low ISO and lens cleaning cloth to remove the seaspray from your lens that could spoil your shots. :-)

    the weather forcast as at 10.00 am Thursday for Saturday is isolated showers becoming scattered in the afternoon. Looking at what is coming could possibly swing down to the SE. A bit of cloud, setting sun and the odd shower will only add drama to the images that can be gained. Be bold, allow the creative juices flow and enjoy. Make sure you bring warm clothing and some waterproof jacket, just in case. Simon G

    Just an update:
    Please meet at the Boatshed Cafe at 3:00pm. I've arranged a table at the cafe so you should be able to easily find our group. While we wait for people to arrive, we'll have afternoon tea.

    We'll wait until 3:45pm for any late comers, then we'll set off on the walk to the Hallett Cove Conservation area. See you all next Saturday!

    • Sebastian N.

      Will this work? They stop lunch at 3pm.

      July 28, 2013

    • Joseph T.

      Yes afternoon tea (tea/coffee, cakes etc) are still served. It's just their pizza oven will be shut. If you want to come down for lunch let me know and I can arrange lunch at 2pm if you prefer.

      July 29, 2013

  • Joseph T.

    Sunset will be at 5:30pm, so starting the walk at 4:00pm should give us plenty of time and see the conservation trail and take pictures.

    If anybody would like to see the menu for the cafe for the afternoon tea at 3:00pm, I've placed the menu online:

    Happy to give people a lift - if you need one leave your suberb in a comment and whether you have a car at all.
