THE MINERAL POOL has Hargrave Creek run through it and over making Hargrave Falls. The creek continues to the northern lagoon at Stanwell Park. The Mineral Pool is now in the private hands of a developer and there is no longer access by the public.

The NORTHERN ILLAWARRA and ROYAL NATIONAL PARK COASTLINE. The RNP is the 2nd oldest declared park after YELLOWSTONE PARK in the USA. This view would not have changed much since Captain James Cook sailed up the Eastern Coast of Australia in 1770.

The ILLAWARRA ESCARPMENT is basically made of Hawksbury Sandstone, so in some cases the weather has interesting effects causing natural rock sculptures. This is the THUMB AND FINGERS ROCK on Mt Mitchell, above Stanwell Park.

COALCLIFF village. Nestled on the northern Illawarra coast, just south of Stanwell Park and at the base of the Illawarra Escarpment. A large coal mine is located here in the back part of the valley where coal was first discovered in Australia.

SEA CLIFF BRIDGE from an unusual angle atop of the ILLAWARRA ESCARPMENT. The bridge was built between Coalcliff and Clifton because the main road, Lawrence Hargrave Drive was in constant danger of being hit by rocks and large boulders from the cliffs
