Grotto Point

Grotto Point, overlooking North Harbour, is a rock engraving site with a beautiful outlook, reached by a steep bush track.

While surveying Port Jackson in 1788, William Bradley and others moored at Grotto Point and ‘made a Tent Fore & Aft the Longboat, in which we all slept’. The first known watercolour by the unknown ‘Port Jackson Painter’ depicts the headland’s ‘grotto’ formation, now gone.
