Summer brings the most tourists to our village, though there are plenty of them right throughout the year. This influx more than trebles the local population with all holiday rentals booked & the council-owned camping reserve absolutely chock-a-block full. These are camping sites which have town water & electricity supplied plus an amenities block for laundry, etc & the shops with takeaways, coffee shops, all the usual, nearby, so the campers aren't exactly roughing it.
a new year's morning
These are images taken at two of our local beaches, Main Beach & Shark Bay, as well as the little beaches on our estuarine tidal river, on the the morning of 1st January 2009. Didn't look to be too many post NYE celebration hangovers. This is one of the busiest times of the year for our beaches. The tourist summer season is in full swing & our town is packed to the rafters
