Sierra Nevada Rock, Point Nepean National Park, Portsea
The Sierra Nevada Rocks are located in the Point Nepean National Park in Portsea. The rocks were named after the Sierra Nevada iron trading ship that ran aground in rough seas at Point Phiilp's Head on Victoria's rugged west coast on 8 May 1900. The vessel drifted onto rocks while waiting for the pilot vessel.
The Sierra Nevada Rock was a dramatic subject to shoot at sunset as it overlooks the ocean and rugged Portsea landscape like a majestic and mythical griffin. It is surrounded by the lush seaweed covered rock face and rock pools.
