Abstract

This paper documents the deposition of large boulders on the Beecroft Peninsula, New South Wales, during a one in four-year swell event in October 1999. The size of the boulders in relation to the magnitude of the swell suggests that the boulder field at Whale Point on the Beecroft Peninsula is explicable in terms of storm swells alone.
