Redhead Beach is a great spot about a half hour's drive out of the centre of Newcastle. It's a popular beach for photographers who visit to capture the old wooden shark-tower that sits atop rocks on the shoreline.
"The Redhead tower was constructed in 1929, during the Depression, by relief labour for unemployed local men. The timber came from a local disused coalmine..." You can find out more about the history of the old Redhead shark-tower here.
Above the old shark-tower and the Redhead surf club is the bluff, where this picture was taken. Redhead Bluff offers ocean views all the way down to Blacksmiths beach... and it's a perfect spot for catching the sunset — especially when the sunset glows golden like it did on this day.
