On our doorstep though are a number of beautiful spots which people ignore for the lure of the coast, choosing three hours drive over twenty minutes.
We often head to Casuarina Sands for a float in our (cheapy) tubes. Today was beautifully sunny, but with a lovely cooling breeze so we headed to Angle Crossing for a swim/float and from there onto picturesque Tharwa Sandwash. We'd not been to either place before, but we'll definitely return.
Both places were deserted apart from a couple of fisherman and a friendly ranger told us the best spots to enter/exit. Sometimes it pays to stay in the 'Bush Capital' and not follow the crowds.
