We sort of found this place by luck as we were travelling down the coast and picked up a House sit and we were here for 10 days and went for a drove and found it another hidden gem here in NSW. Why would they all head north to QLD when they have such fine beaches down around Sydney and they can swim in sea anytime unlike in north Queensland.
The day we visited it was overcast and dull but people were every where, being a mid week visit but in the school holidays, the traffic both on the roads and in the water was so busy.
And if your thing is sand beach driving within the same area is Stockton Beach which has some great 4x4 beach driving it covers a huge area and well worth the visit.
we have been so lucky in that our house sits have been in some great places and all the people we have meet are so friendly and it has been a joy to visit and travel and we have so much to to see as we travel along.
