Coalcliff is a rural and residential area, and is known to be one of the first sightings on the east coast coal seam located underneath the Sea Cliff Bridge. Coalcliff originated in 1797 when survivors of a wreck set out to find Sydney and found coal here which they used to make a fire for warmth. George Bass was sent by Governor Hunter to investigate and found several seams that extended for some distance. The Illawarra coal seams had been observed at Coalcliff as early as 1797. Major Features of the area are Coalcliff Beach, Coalcliff Coke Works, Sea Cliff Bridge and Coalcliff Rock Baths.
