Broken Bay Writers – Stories of NSW Central Coast and beyond

Scribbles on life, the universe and everything… Woy Woy, Ettalong, Umina and teh Central Coast that is!

Two Rocks


We had a couple of hours to kill so we decided to leave Perth and head North to see what we could find. We tried to keep to the coast which wasn’t easy as signage is not good.

What struck me was the new houses and subdivisions. We drove for about an hour and all we saw were new houses. We even went through subdivisions that are built and don’t have anyone living in them yet. What an eerie feeling! It is like driving through a ghost town, but new.

Another thing that we noticed was the amount of boats and boat ramps. Every town no matter how small it was had boat ramps. There would be a line anywhere from 4-10 of them in a row. Fancy boat ramps. And, boat storage places. There were boats everywhere. The waters don’t look that calm, but they must be because the boats really ranged in size from small runabouts to beautiful large yachts.

We ended up in Two Rocks situated about 45 minutes from Perth, aptly named for the two rocks sticking out of the water near the marina. Another boating community, fishing not pleasure. All of the fish boats are dry docked so it must get rough in these parts. It looks like it does. The coastline is beautiful and the sand is white, very white!

Two Rocks has a large statue which is not unusual for Australia. They seem to like to build large statues of the weirdest things. My first impression of this statue was Good King Wenceslas, but it wasn’t. It turned out to be King Neptune! It is the remnants of a marine theme park that went out of business. Two Rocks then went back to being a small fishing village.

Two Rocks is as far as we went. It was time to head back to Perth. We found a nice little marina pub and had something to eat. Not hard to find marina’s either as there are many. I tell you, I thought I was from a boating community, but I have never seen so many boats, marina’s and launches as I did North of Perth

Unfortunately, it was time to turn back. I would have like to have seen more of the North Coast. Beautiful!
