Black Rock House, an affluent residence built by Charles Hotson Ebden in 1856, gave the suburb its name. This originated from Black Rock in Dublin, Ireland.

One of the most significant features of the foreshore is Red Bluff. It is an oxidised iron cliff face that bears a burnt orange appearance. On both sides of Red Bluff are various trendy beaches and bayside destinations.

Black Rock presents beautiful surrounds. There are several recreational reserves situated throughout the shoreline and near the town centre. The dominant shopping centre in Black Rock is home to the outstanding Black Rock Clock Tower.
