Geology and Fossils at Green Point

Green Point

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.

Green Point is a colourful & active fishing village in season

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.
