Rye back beach – The Dragon’s Head and the Pod

A few images of the rock formations at the Number Sixteen beach at Rye.

Pictured below – The Dragon’s Head rock, initially named by a local with a fertile imagination.

Below – The Pod, ….well I had to call it something since all of the good names like Dragon’s Head had already been snapped up.

  1. Great shots. I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to wading across rocks. Especially with my 5dmkII! I dont care about me getting wrecked as much, haha. What access point is closest to the plateaus at 16’s? I used to go there as I kid and remember there is a few tracks to the beach.

    • Hi Charlotte,

      Use the Number 16 beach entrance at the intersection of Tasman Drive and Marcia Ave. There’s car parking available in there.
