Green Point is a geology site that has unique cliffs and many unique layered rocks that is worth a visit connecting to nearly 500 million years of a rock forming from the ancient ocean. You can find it just south of Sally’s Cove on the Great Northern Peninsula. There’s a short trail to the pair of red chairs that offer the spectacular view. You can also take the road through the fishing village and walk up a staircase or trek the beach depending on the tides. I was sure to visit this marvel during the lowering of the tides.
An interpretative panel explains the fossils that define the boundary between the Cambrian and Ordovician periods and makes Green Point a world geological benchmark.
You can enjoy the Green Point Campground just a few hundred metres south and spend lots of time exploring the beach.
