History

View historical timeline

Bluff Rock was the site of the first conflict between local settlers and a local Aboriginal group. The true story will never be known, but it is believed that the Aboriginals killed a shepherd named Robinson on the Irby Station. The Aboriginals then fled to the rock, chased by a group of white men who caught them and threw them off the top of the outcrop.

This is one of those crags that is so obvious and that many have had a look at but the climbing history is very foggy.
