After a few attemps only now has it been possible to travel by car the length of the east coast drive between Sydney and Brisbane. And as it is summer we thought to checkout the diving highlight Fish Rock Cave. Instead, we got foul weather and an unexpected surprise with this little town in between cities.
Having much more history than just a diving destination, South West Rocks dates back to convict times. It is located in Trial Bay and the name came from the instructions the pilot officer gave instructions vessels to anchor southwest of their anchorage.
