Another post with an Australia theme.
One of the great Canberra traditions is the weekend at the coast, the coast in question being "The South Coast", that part of the New South Wales coast south of Sydney. The centre of the South Coast is Batemans Bay, a town of 17,000 people at the mouth of the Clyde River, about 2 hours drive from Canberra.
In the last 30 years the South Coast has really grown up: once it was all caravan parks and fibro shacks (there is a great blog about the south coast and fibro shacks here), now in parts it looks like a suburb of Canberra: all unfeasibly large McMansions on improbably small blocks of land.
There are places where the old South Coast can still be seen, and the weekend before Christmas Susan and I visited one such place. Tuross Head is somewhere I have visited before, when I was about 12 years old, but I don't recall ever staying there.
