"Well kept secret and we like it that way!"

Have lived here for about three years. This is a lovely, peaceful, clean little town with gorgeous beaches, good fishing and boating. The area is underdeveloped but has great parks and boardwalks around the beach. There is adequate shopping: Coles, bakeries, butchers, small boutiques, hardware store, pharmacy, star value shop, cafes/eateries, excellent clubs and fantastic Poyers couple of kms away in Lemon Tree. Good mix of housing, old and new. Good mix of people, small primary school. Lovely place to live, retire and enjoy life.
