Sow & Pigs

The "Sow & Pigs" is a submerged reef, just inside Sydney Heads. Explosives were used to break it up to make it less dangerous for shipping.

These photos were taken from Middle Head facing SE. The cliff of South Head is to the left. The water in the foreground is Sydney Harbour. The water in the background is the Pacific Ocean. The beach is Camp Cove. The bay on the right, with all the vessels is Watsons Bay. The depression in the centre of the photo is the notorious "Gap".

Splendid views, Julie.

"The sow & pigs". Such a descriptive name. A sow and her piglets are best avoided and so, no doubt, was this submerged reef.
