Bombo Quarry is a headland made of unusual basalt columns and walls caused by metal quarrying in the area in the 1880s and 1900s. It is a driving distance of about 2 hours from Sydney and is located close to Kiama. It is a popular place to shoot for local as well as international landscape photographers. North of the quarry are the Cathedral Rocks, Minnamurra Headland and Jones' Beach, while south lies Kiama.
The quarry is located off Cliff Drive. Take the Kiama Downs turn off from the Princess Highway, and cross under railway bridge at Bombo Beach. There is a car park at Panama St, Bombo beach, which is only a ten minute walk from the quarry.
I came here with landscape photographer Brad Chilby, based in Wollongong (http://chilby.com.au), to take some pictures for my blog and a Danish clothing brand called Cream Clothing (https://www.cream-clothing.com) for which I was shooting. We arrived at the quarry around sunset time and even though it was raining and we didn't have ideal weather conditions, the quarry itself was quite spectacular. The unusual columns and walls rising from the ocean along with the waves beating down at the rocks, created a powerful and dramatic landscape and we got some seriously good pictures! This is one place where you can shoot at any time of the day and in any weather condition.
