Black head, at first, seems to be a very usual rock platform, the same as tens of others in the Sydney region. In addition to that, it is not marked as a tourist attraction of any kind.

Despite of this, head is very popular – here you can spend all day looking for fossils.

Black Head is considered as one of the best places for fossil hunting on the coast, if you know what to look for, you can find examples of fossil trees and, with additional luck, small sea creatures.
