We have one of the longest uninterrupted white sand beaches in the world. The "moving" sand dunes to the north have been used in such movies as Mad Max to re-create desert scenes and Star Wars Episode II. South of our town is another beach area which is used in the show "Home & Away" which is shown in the UK.
I work about 50 kilometers away from home in a school with 320 children. I was born in the hot centre of Oz, so living on the coast is still a bit of an oddity. I had no connection to my current hometown until when doing my family history for my dad's family I discovered that the house I moved into was once the home of a crewman who worked on my great grandfather's tug boat 100 years ago. Spooky!
