After the devastation of the New Years bushfires our beautiful town was isolated for weeks, without lots of services, all visitors had to be evacuated……
Months later, and after further isolation due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are beginning to see positive signs of recovery and growth. As restrictions ease we had hoped our town would see many new and returning visitors.
Locals have been supportive of each other and many have gone above and beyond in their efforts.
We will welcome all visitors, and want to see our regular holiday makers return when it is safe for everyone.
The fishing will be awesome as there has been restrictions on boating and fishing. The lake and ocean are crystal clear and the fish have had a break from anglers. The entrances at Bastion and Betka are wide and flowing .
Betka beach has a new wall to protect the beach area , and the picnic area and lookouts are all rebuilt better than before.
The main caravan park also has a new , strong wall being built where campers moor their boats.
Beaches have recovered well, and also are crystal clear, with whale watching season about to begin.
Some walking and bike tracks have been repaired, and works continue….
Jetties and picnic areas around the lake are being rebuilt slowly.
The surrounding bush areas are recovering and lots of new growth can be seen. Wildflowers and native orchids seem to be thriving, and birdlife is noisy once again.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO OUR REGULAR VISITORS RETURNING, AND NEW VISITORS DISCOVERING OUR PARADISE…….
