The Meeting of the Waters make our beaches something special!
When humans first started roaming the earth, the oceans contained exactly the same percentage of salt as our bodies. The ocean remains an important part of us, and once you step onto the sand, the rest of the world seems a bit further away.
Wildlife is abundant, thanks to the warm East Australian Current from the north – yes Nemo’s famous EAC – which collides with the southern current coming from Antarctica, causing a colossal eruption of marine bio-diversity.
We are lucky to have more than 150 beaches, more than 400 kilometres of estuarine foreshore. Some are so remote you have to walk for days to reach them, others are so convenient you have to arrive early in the morning to stake your claim on the sand.
