With so many family-friendly beaches in the area, some patrolled during summer holidays, you've just got to take your pick, pack boards and buckets and enjoy!Favourite surf spots are many and varied. When the swell is big there are spots around Forster that are great, notably the reef break known as Haydon's Rock. At Burgess Beach, you'll enjoy great body surfing when the conditions are right; Seven Mile Beach has spots with great waves most of the time and Boomerang Beach and Blueys at Pacific Palms are well known surfing beaches.
There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
